[Recap of Episodes 33 & 34] C-drama: My Best Ex-Boyfriend

This recap post probably wins for having the most number of photos/screencaps because of: 1.) both episodes 33 and 34 just gave a lot of reasons to screencap which you’ll know if you decide to read more 2.) we’re slowly approaching towards the end of the series so all the possible happenings in the drama are starting to reveal (or have revealed) themselves.

So are you ready for this long recap post? 😀

Our OTP just being adorable!

We ended episode 32 with Fangsi still waiting for Tang to come back so we start episode 33 with a flashback scene from 6 years ago. She waited in their usual meet-up place f0r the whole day because she was willing to give Li Tang a second chance again even if she got mad at him for selling her shop. However, he never came…

we go to the present time and our Li Tang is back!

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.00.53Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.01.05

Haoran finally found Fangsi after searching everywhere!

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.01.15Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.01.23

Fangsi started to tell Haoran the important details of how her relationship with Tang ended exactly 6 years ago…

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.01.33

Honestly hated Haoran at this very moment because that’s what all he said when Fangsi was clearly emotional in reminiscing her past.

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.02.29Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.02.39

Fangsi narrated how Tang waited for her the whole night even if she didn’t want to talk to him after finding out that he sold her shop. However, when she sent the text message to Tang and he never came, she felt so much pain even if she only waited for a few hours.

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.02.46Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.02.54

Oh Haoran, I hated you even more in this scene! Tang has always been worth it for her as you can see…

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.03.05

It just touched my heart that she was defending how she was feeling towards Tang! *my heart*

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.03.23

and our male lead enters the scene! *insert squeals*

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.03.44Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.03.56

*more squeals* and our poor Haoran gets to witness the reunion of Fangsi and Tang but he just had to leave when he saw them…

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.04.13Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.04.16

KISSED!!! And this time, Fangsi was more than willing to 😀

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.04.47Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.04.50Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.04.59

I would hit Tang hard too because of what he did but it’s easy to forgive if I get a kiss from him haha! And because now we know why he left all of a sudden…

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.05.09Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.06.42

Now we (the audience) and Tang himself know how much he means to Fangsi!

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.06.54Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.07.05

Tang told Fangsi that it’s been 6 years and it should just be right that he knows his position in her life.

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.07.22

Jerry’s character in dramas always seems to be the one who says I love you first (e.g. Meteor Garden, Starlit, My Splendid Life, etc). The way he said it to her was just so cute though!

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.07.37Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.07.55

This is why dramas give us such unrealistic expectations of men… where can I get my own Li Tang?!

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.08.28

Fangsi told Tang that she’s been waiting for him the whole day just like 6 years ago and he wasn’t even aware of it because…

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.08.46Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.09.13

we go back to the same flashback scene which was shown in one of the past episodes that happened when Fangsi and Tang broke up. He met Xiangnan when he was walking like a dead person who didn’t seem to care about the world and unconsciously dropped his phone…

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.09.36

So one of the commenters in my recap posts guessed it right!

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.09.54Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.10.04

Fangsi didn’t mind since she got used to him always being late anyway. This time, Tang promises that they would be inseparable now!

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.10.18Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.10.35

People with second male lead syndrome are probably as heartbroken as Haoran is now. He did so many things for Fangsi but his feelings were never reciprocated by her.

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.10.46Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.10.55Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.11.01

I love Haoran’s use of this sand to compare with his feelings towards Fangsi. He said that just like the sand, it was slowly building up and he was also willing to become a castle to protect her. However, Tang is still clearly in her heart.

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.11.31

Couple goals: stay in your favorite meeting place with your lover from night until you’ve seen the sun rise. Though my parents would’ve killed me if I do this so I’ll probably just wait until I reach Fangsi’s age?!! HAHAHA.

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.12.34

Fangsi told Tang that he must really hate her for using their break-up date to be his password in everything (house lock, important files, etc).

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.12.40

He said that he could never forget that day even if it many years have passed already.

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.12.57Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.13.33
He also said, who did she think he was? some kind of text message garbage that she could just throw away?! Although he was so angry about it, he said that he would always tell himself in his unhappy and happy times that it would be better if Fangsi was there with him (aww!).

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.14.06Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.14.16

then that escalated quickly! Someone who never believed in marriage before is actually telling his one and only love to marry him.

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.14.43Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.14.45

You were able to tolerate the same person for 10 years so I have no idea how you can’t give an answer right away? 😮

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.16.27Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.16.29

Fangsi lied to her mom about where she went last night. She just told her that she got a little drunk from the banquet so she sobered up before coming home. The lie didn’t work because her mom’s beloved Xiao Li delivered love breakfast for them haha!

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.16.39Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.17.06

Momma has nothing to worry about since her daughter’s getting married to him anyway. I just love how he said it so casually when Fangsi clearly hasn’t given her answer yet…

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.21.46

And he had so much confidence to tell her mom because of this… oh Tang! Never change please haha!

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.22.42

Haoran enters the scene and because our Tang has always been thick-skinned… he proudly tells him that…

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.23.05

oops he almost said it!

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.23.23Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.23.33

I just had to screencap this scene  because who doesn’t love an overprotective and jealous male lead?! haha!

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.25.07

This is why Fangsi didn’t want to know about what Haoran did to her. Really funny!

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.25.39Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.25.42

She kissed Tang on the cheek to ease his feelings of hatred towards Haoran. It just made me so happy because we can actually see Fangsi being unusually sweet and Tang’s facial expressions were just so adorable!

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.26.53

You said it! And so we’re back with our gossip girls fighting over who matches their boss Fangsi more!

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.27.19Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.27.21

Gossip girls’ leader Du Niang bets on Tang while cutie Jiaxin continues to bet on Haoran.

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.27.25

Though the former pro-Tang Xiao Nai doesn’t want her beloved boss to end up with either of them!

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.28.39Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.32.37

Fangsi’s momma is already deciding on the perfect wedding date for her daughter and Xiao Li even if Fangsi hasn’t actually agreed to him yet. You go, momma!

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.33.47Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.35.02

Fangsi decided to check on how her good ol’ neighbor’s doing but she was just disappointed to see him so drunk. Haoran attempted to kiss her but he just passed out. I feel so bad for him now 😦

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.40.37

. This scene just made me laugh because one facial feature that I super love about Jerry is his sharp (and unplastic) nose lol!

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.40.59

Fangsi told Tang that he could tell her anything that’s been bothering me. He was thinking about his father who’s suffering now because of the people who have been suspecting him of leaking important information to Tang. Both Da Luo and Fangsi think it’s time that Tang quits using battle weapons because he’s still his father after all.

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.43.07

Gossip girls attack their boss to find out the truth!

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.43.21

*evil laughs* I guess Xiao Nai doesn’t know her boss well enough when I actually thought that she does!

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.46.28Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.46.47

Tang dragged Fangsi out of the gossip girls and brought her to the office inside the factory that he bought for her. He also let her know his original intention for buying this place (so Haoran can’t blackmail him with anything anymore).

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.47.17Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.47.20Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.47.25

*more tears* *and more hearts melting* which we will continue in the next episode!


Screenshot 2015-09-03 18.59.46

and so our female lead was unusually shedding tears because of Tang’s touching speech and gesture. Only he is able to make her cry (aww!)
Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.00.11Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.00.15

Tang starts his longer touching speech…

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.00.28Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.00.39

AAAAHHH! He proposes to his one and only Fangsi!

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.00.51Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.00.58

and starts to cry 😥

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.01.10

He promises to be more mature and serious for her as he has always promised her in the past.

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.01.42

Our beloved gossip girls are happily cheering for this couple of the century!

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.01.59Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.02.20

our heroine says yes!!!

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.02.41Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.03.35

So apparently, there was a competition on piggy-back riding when they were in college (flashback scene). Even if I have back problems, I’d definitely be okay if I get to have a Jerry/Tang riding on my back… 😉 haha!

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.04.07Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.04.17

We’re back to the present time and Fangsi actually figured out that Tang purposely had that kind of competition plan out that way so he could be closer to her. Aww!

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.04.34

He made it a requirement for their student union so he could convince Fangsi to join. Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.04.52Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.04.54

Fangsi told him that he owes her a lot because her thighs hurt a lot from carrying him for one month. So Tang told him that he would carry her for the rest of his life *my heart’s melting*. Really, Fangsi?! Why would you need to think about it? I’d say yes all the way haha!

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.05.34

A sign that Haoran’s going to let go of this sand in which he compared his feelings to towards Fangsi.

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.06.34Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.06.58

Fangsi’s momma sees that her daughter’s engaged for real! However, she disagrees! Wait, I’m really confused, momma… All this time I thought you were pro-Tang?!

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.07.10Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.09.08

Momma told her daughter to observe more since that’s what she said before but Fangsi said that she thinks she has already observed enough. Her mom asks, what if he returns to his old self? Fangsi doesn’t think so and she’ll start believing in him.

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.09.48Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.09.51

I just knew it, momma! It would be impossible for her to be suddenly anti-Tang with no reason so there’s actually a reason why she wasn’t allowing her daughter to marry him.

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.10.01

I just had to take a screencap of this because Maggie/Fangsi looked so adorable looking at her precious diamond ring!

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.10.18

Move over, Tang and Fangsi! We get another scene with our new ship, Benjamin and Xiao Nai! He talked about how upset he was about Fangsi breaking Haoran’s heart.

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.11.21

Xiao Nai gave him an advice using a cup of tea. If he doesn’t know which one is his, he has no choice but to taste before he finds out which one is his. So I just love that Benjamin answered this though she wasn’t able to hear it. I just love them! 😉

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.12.04Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.13.03

bottle of sand + Tong Lin floral diamonds = Haoran’s indicators of love for Fangsi which were just left abandoned since she never came to receive them.

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.13.21Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.13.34

This has actually been emphasized by Benjamin to Haoran before, that he didn’t fail in giving the same attention to Fangsi the way Tang did. However, Fangsi took his feelings for granted.

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.15.02Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.15.39

Fangsi apologizes to him because she feels bad about ignoring his feelings for her. Haoran kept saying that he doesn’t need her to pity him since he doesn’t regret anything. It was just him who started admiring her for her work attitude but he ended up falling in love with her.

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.15.53

He told her that maybe if they had met earlier, then things would probably not end up the way they are now.

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.16.20

She frankly told him that she’d still probably choose Tang (ouch!). He said, couldn’t she at least lie to him? Then Fangsi told him that she can’t lie to him because it would just hurt him.

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.16.56

OVERUSED DRAMA PLOT LINE: the second male lead gets friend-zoned!

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.17.35

Du Niang collects money from both Jiaxin and Xiao Nai after winning their bet on who Fangsi would choose. Jiaxin wants another bet! I just love how she has always been for Haoran haha! Now that’s a strong shipper heart right there. Xiao Nai and her believe that Fangsi can still change her mind if ever Tang becomes too difficult to handle again.

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.19.23Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.20.08

Tang’s going to give back Fancy to Fangsi. It’s apparently all set now and all that they have to do is to go to the law firm and sign the legal documents needed to complete the transfer of ownership back to Fangsi. She wasn’t willing to because he should’ve at least discussed his plans with her first before making any decisions.

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.21.34Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.21.54

Tang’s father called and invited them for a meal. Fangsi wasn’t willing to go because it’s just all too fast now but Tang insisted…

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.23.25Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.23.28

His father was indeed in a good mood because all he talked about was how Tang excelled in managing the company’s problems and didn’t even give him a hard time by giving up on their US-based company.

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.24.39Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.24.46

So Fangsi proposed a toast with her father-in-law (who saw her diamond ring) but the calmness of the situation ended when…

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.25.09Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.25.22

Classic drama tale: Parent(s) disagreeing to their child’s choices in life but more specifically, who they choose to be with. Is it just me or is this Hot Shot 2.0, Meteor Garden 2.0, etc. all over again?!! HAHA.

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.25.32

We have yet to find out why actually…

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.25.46

His father just said that Fangsi’s even greedier than Xiangnan but we have actually yet to see that greediness that his father’s talking about…

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.26.17

That’s what I’m talking about! Isn’t your son too old already to be under your control?! But this is dramaland, where inheriting a company and being in a fixed marriage are the main antagonistic scenarios…

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.27.16

but love will triumph, of course! but it’s just too early to say that because there are still A LOT of things that will take place!

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.27.28Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.27.39

Fangsi takes off her engagement ring (noooo!!!) because she wants everything to be cleared out between Tang and his father first. I don’t know if you watched Gossip Girl before, maybe you did at least once but if you watched until the end like I did, this scene reminded me of Chuck and Blair who couldn’t be together unless they get to fix their own personal issues first. Tang’s case is exactly like Chuck’s wherein he has to settle the problem with his father first. Okay I couldn’t help but share so I’m sorry if you think it wasn’t necessary for me to compare haha!

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.27.54Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.28.01

Tang told Fangsi that it’s obvious that his problem with his father will never be cleared out. Fangsi’s really optimistic about it because he already started complimenting him which means that he can already recognize him as his son. So they should wait for everything to be okay before they decide to get married.

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.28.17Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.28.52

Even if she returns the ring to him, she said that she would never leave him. Love them huhu!

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.29.35

Fangsi called out Tang for calling his own father Mr. Li so he decided to annoy her more lol!

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.29.55

So Fangsi told Tang that they should go back and talk to his dad properly. He can do it since he’s thick-skinned anyway (for kissing her first). I love the silly faces that they make!

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.30.05

but when they went back to see his father again, he was already on the floor!

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.33.29

He refused to go to the hospital and stayed in Tang’s house but only for an ulterior motive which is to get his passport. In that way, he won’t be able to go to the USA and get married to Fangsi there…

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.33.56Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.34.11

Now we know where Tang got his childishness… his father is just so childish that I couldn’t even take it @_@ his dad doesn’t like going to Tang’s place because it was a gift from his mom. We’ll learn more about Tang’s dad and his estranged relationship with his mom in the next episode.

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.35.31Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.36.52

HAHA I finally guessed something right (which is actually obvious!). Xiangnan and Amy have been conniving against our leads!

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.37.27

Haoran was called for a meeting with Qiao Na Shen’s (one of NSH’s shareholders)  wife who happens to be his ex-girlfriend… Long time no see, Xiangnan!

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.37.43Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.38.34

Oh Haoran, you have always been blinded by this woman! Don’t give in, please!

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.39.03

Here’s a girl who kept whining in the first few episodes for being Fangsi’s assistant forever but she actually agreed to be someone’s assistant again who happens to be a much more worse person. Oh well, birds of the same feather flock together!

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.40.07Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.40.54Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.41.30

So now we know what Xiangnan’s favor is… Haoran, don’t give in!!! Though I’m quite sure that you will because you’re such a hao ren (good person) lol!

Screenshot 2015-09-03 19.42.40

We end this episode with a vengeful Xiangnan who has obviously plotted this planning so well just to make Tang and his dad pay for what they did to her. This could pass as a plot for a horror/psycho movie actually haha!

My thoughts in a nutshell:

Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.04.35Screenshot 2015-09-02 00.04.44

  • I just had to point out that it’s obvious that Jerry has been showing signs of aging and yet he manages to remain adorable! Not to mention that him and Maggie just have so much chemistry 😀
  • This can be a useful advice from dramaland if ever you have someone who’s been giving you mixed signals, just disappear for awhile and then you’ll know for sure if you really matter to him/ her haha!
  • My feelings towards Haoran have been so consistent so far because my feelings have been consistently inconsistent… Sometimes I just hate him but sometimes I just pity him!
  • If episode 33 gave me a lot to love about the drama, the 34th episode just gave me reasons to hate it. Really annoying characters have joined full force here (Tang’s dad, Amy, and Xiangnan!)
  • Xiangnan’s back but we all know that her return isn’t going to do us and our main leads good!
  • So what did you think of today’s episodes? 😀 episode 33 reached 80 screencaps while episode 34 almost reached 80 wow @_@ the average number of screencaps for an episode recap is 20+ so this is really shocking! Are you looking forward to it now that Xiangnan’s back and now that Tang and Fangsi are engaged?

    wah, you recap it. and it’s 40-something episodes, correct me if i was wrong..

    i do enjoy watching this drama, even sometimes i skipped here and there, haha.. especially with that xiangnan, but haoran never learns and i dislike him for this. why he fell in the same hole again and again.. sigh.

    i hope the bond between fangsi and li tang wont never be separated..

    btw, is his dad an antagonist or he acts like that in order to make li tang becomes mature???


    1. dramarian Post author

      yesss it’s until episode 42 so I’ll be recapping until the end! Haoran can be so annoying for always believing in Xiangnan lol and yesss, Tang and Fangsi forever!!! Not sure actually, he can be simply naturally childish and yet it’s also a motive for the betterment of his son 😀 thank you so much for commenting! 🙂
