[Recap of Episodes 41 & 42] C-drama: My Best Ex-Boyfriend

LAST RECAP POST OF “MY BEST EX-BOYFRIEND” EVER?! Wow, time surely does fly fast! Before anything else, I just want to thank all of you for patiently reading (and waiting!) my recaps and random thoughts. If it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t have continued writing these recaps at all. I actually never intended to write one at first since I had no experience in writing one before and because I have also been very busy. But look where we are now, I’ve literally dropped anything else to watch and write about this drama all the way to its overwhelming number (42!!) of episodes!

Special acknowledgement to Viki for subbing this drama as fast as lightning! I seriously thought that Jerry Yan fans like me would have to wait for months or so before this gets subbed but wow, they managed to finish it even earlier than China’s release. So thank you so much, Viki!

Thank you to the production team of “My Best Ex-Boyfriend” especially the cast and crew for making fans like me happy! I know that they may never get to see this but I still want to thank them for giving us a very enjoyable drama to watch.

Most importantly, thank you to all the readers! It brightens my day to see the number of views increasing every time I would post a recap and much more when people would actually comment their own opinions about the drama. Xie xie ni! 😀Screenshot 2015-09-06 00.15.26Screenshot 2015-09-06 01.15.06

Fangsi proudly presents his male model for Si Tang! I just love Da Luo haha!

Tang seems to be busy answering his beloved fiancee’s messages instead of listening to Uncle Xue’s business proposal.

Trouble seems to attack Fangsi’s new brand now that NSH has released its new collection with all of her designs when she still had Fancy.

Screenshot 2015-09-06 00.13.56

Fangsi just acted calm and isolated herself in her office in order to recreate her sketches because they’re all similar in style with NSH’s latest designs. Tang told her that of course it’s similar because it was just done by one person.

Fangsi told Tang that she has to start from scratch or she would be called a copycat. She also told him that he need not bother with the drawings anymore because he has many other things to worry about.

nth inspiring lesson from our heroine!

Screenshot 2015-09-06 00.16.27Screenshot 2015-09-06 00.16.44Screenshot 2015-09-06 00.16.51

Fangsi told Tang that she would have to isolate herself in order to start with the new sketches. Tang just made her promise to always answer his calls, not be irritated that he’d go to her house for dinner, and of course, not to look at any other guys 😉 why else would she if she already has you?? because I totally wouldn’t too if I were Fangsi ❤

Screenshot 2015-09-06 00.58.35Screenshot 2015-09-06 00.59.49

Fangsi’s finding inspiration for her new designs using the three most important things to her: family, friends, and love.

Screenshot 2015-09-06 01.03.15

Xiangnan invited Fangsi to the press conference of her newest collection as NSH’s president.

Screenshot 2015-09-06 01.03.37

We all know that Xiangnan’s invite did not have any good intentions but Fangsi didn’t care because she really wanted to go. Her Fancy designs were like her children and she would want to see them graduate of course.

Screenshot 2015-09-06 01.05.59

The people in the factory hate that Tang has been busy promoting NSH with Xiangnan and that it was also being funded by LS Jewellery. While Fangsi and her workers are stuck with using flyers to promote Si Tang. Tang even said, are we promoting a new restaurant? HAHA.

Screenshot 2015-09-06 01.07.32

Xiao Nai has been badmouthing Tang because she told Fangsi that she should be careful since Tang and Xiangnan shared a past.

Screenshot 2015-09-06 01.07.35Screenshot 2015-09-06 01.08.03

but it doesn’t worry Fangsi because she trusts Tang very much 😀

Screenshot 2015-09-06 01.08.50Screenshot 2015-09-06 01.09.02

One aspect of Tang and Fangsi’s love for each other that I LOVE: they believe in each other very much!

Screenshot 2015-09-06 01.09.59Screenshot 2015-09-06 01.10.02

This is going to be exciting!

Screenshot 2015-09-06 01.10.49Screenshot 2015-09-06 01.11.58Screenshot 2015-09-06 01.12.32

I love how Fangsi looked like when she was seeing her designs come to life. Though it was also a bittersweet moment since no one else knew that they were hers except the leads.

What video broadcast?! – Xiangnan

All of your plans have already backfired on you, Xiangnan! She got karma and she definitely tainted her own reputation while unconsciously setting the stage for Fangsi.

Screenshot 2015-09-06 01.16.19Screenshot 2015-09-06 01.16.37

Our Prince Charmings have connived against Xiangnan by asking for help from James and in turn helped the same person that they love who is Fangsi.

Screenshot 2015-09-06 01.17.10Screenshot 2015-09-06 01.17.27

Tang didn’t care if he didn’t know who James is, all that matters is that there’s a reason why he has always been Fangsi’s idol. Tang’s always willing to take risks and he knows that this plan will be able to help Fangsi.

Screenshot 2015-09-06 01.17.36Screenshot 2015-09-06 01.17.48

Tang didn’t respond to his handshake and said, “do you think I look happy working with you?” Oh Tang haha! So Haoran apologized to him and his father for what he did when he helped Xiangnan.

Screenshot 2015-09-06 01.19.18Screenshot 2015-09-06 01.19.31

Well, Fu Fangsi’s not as despicable as you are, Cheng Xiangnan!

Screenshot 2015-09-06 01.19.43

Is this the end of the XiangRan ship?

Screenshot 2015-09-06 01.21.08

Not sure if I pity her or not… but after all the things that she has done, she’s still the one who got hurt!

Screenshot 2015-09-06 01.22.10Screenshot 2015-09-06 01.23.27

Haoran told Benjamin that Tang has matured and changed for the better because of Fangsi.

Screenshot 2015-09-06 01.24.33

We end this episode with a quotable quote with Haoran about love!


Screenshot 2015-09-06 01.31.30

And because Haoran said in the previous episode that he’s already sick of this industry, he wants to resign already.

Screenshot 2015-09-06 14.07.31

Tang’s talking to his father on the web that there’s no way for him to run away because he’s been studying the art of jewellery very seriously.

Screenshot 2015-09-06 15.50.25Screenshot 2015-09-06 15.50.40

Fangsi feels guilty about Haoran resigning. She thinks that both Haoran and Tang have done everything for her to fulfill her dream while Haoran’s giving up and even lost interest in the industry that he was always passionate about.

Screenshot 2015-09-06 15.50.58

Tang and his very comforting words as usual haha!

Screenshot 2015-09-06 15.52.59

While watching this, it made me so curious what Xiangnan’s ending would be like given that all she ever did was to envy Fangsi and do something evil towards her.

Screenshot 2015-09-06 15.55.11Screenshot 2015-09-06 15.56.22

Xiangnan has raised the white flag and let go of Rosy Clouds because how could she not when her reputation was already badly tainted.

Screenshot 2015-09-06 15.56.52

Ouch! Tang’s definitely not the best ex-boyfriend for you, Xiangnan!

Screenshot 2015-09-06 15.57.16Screenshot 2015-09-06 15.57.34Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.02.49

I’m one happy and proud Fangsi fangirl!

Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.06.58Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.07.59Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.08.22

Fangsi and Tang walked the runway together to end the show. She said thank you to everyone especially to that one friend who wasn’t there (but he was actually there). Haoran’s actually the best kind of friend that you can’t help but wish to have 🙂

Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.10.04

“Don’t worry, I didn’t do anything to your dress” -Xiangnan. LOL I love it when they refer back to what they did in the past haha!

Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.10.48Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.11.18

Xiangnan believes that Fangsi is just like her who is also dependent on men to get wherever she is right now. Fangsi told her it was her talent and hard work too which placed to wherever she is right now.

Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.12.21Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.12.33

She also told them that she has friends aside from Tang and Haoran who helped her because she never left them. She told Xiangnan that all she cares about is money that’s why no one could stay loyal to her.

Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.13.11Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.13.23Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.13.54

This is why I just love Fangsi even until the end of this drama!

Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.15.52Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.16.29

Xiangnan asked Haoran if all this time he was willing to harm her or help her. He said that it was neither and told her the statement above. Accurate!

Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.17.11Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.17.33

Can’t believe this came from Amy’s mouth! This girl has actually matured wow! I guess the XiangRan ship is not going to sail anymore.

Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.18.35

Tang and Fangsi ditched the celebration after the successful fashion show but these two are still going to continue to celebrate!

Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.19.46Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.20.06Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.20.59

I can never get enough of these two!

Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.21.13

My question ever since my first ever post on this drama has been answered! Yes, Tang. You definitely are! 😉 ❤

Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.21.23Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.21.32

That’s right, Fangsi! No time for hesitations anymore when you have someone like Li Tang 😀

Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.21.41

Whether it’s regarding love or work, they must always be together!

Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.22.06Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.22.15

Fangsi panicked that they didn’t have their household registration books! It turns out that Fangsi’s momma brought it for them since Tang already left it in the Fu’s residence ever since his father returned his. Haha!

Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.23.46

The gang: Da Luo, Xiao Nai, Benjamin, Julia, and Jiaxin also came to celebrate the marriage of our OTP yay!

Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.24.35Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.25.01

The photographer asked them if they’re sure that they’re all going to have a photo together, and Da Luo said, of course! Way too cute!

Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.25.21

Fangsi’s momma = me! FangTang ship forever ❤

Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.25.30Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.25.39

And no one else must get the title from him. I love you, Da Luo! Thanks for always making me laugh 😉

Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.25.48

This OTP wished the other OTP a hundred years of happiness! And Xiao Nai was so cute for saying that she’s happy that she won’t be a spy anymore lol!

Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.26.00

Julia said it should be thrown to her but Jiaxin said that it should be for her because she has a boyfriend while Julia doesn’t haha! Sorry girls, Benjamin called dibs first because he wants Fangsi to throw it to Xiao Nai 😉

Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.26.14Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.26.22Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.26.40

Yeah, how long will this best ex-boyfriend be under probation, Fangsi?!

Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.26.48

OTP’s married for real yaaaay! Thank you for the crazy 3-week roller coaster ride, FangTang 😀 and also the rest of the cast and production team!

My thoughts in a nutshell:

Screenshot 2015-09-06 00.59.45

Screenshot 2015-09-06 16.25.10

  • Some people just get what they deserve. All the hard work and effort that Xiangnan put into taking revenge just backfired on her.
  • Isn’t the ending just the cutest?!! I felt that this drama was really well-written because if it wasn’t, I really think that they would’ve done something ridiculous to make Haoran and Xiangnan end up together. Good news is, they didn’t and I’m highly praising the writers for that 😉
  • Haoran still remained to be a hao ren and this is why people’s second male lead syndrome can never be cured as long as writers create such too-good-to-be-true characters haha!
  • I was looking forward to seeing Fangsi in her own wedding dress design, or even just a sketch of it but okay, I’m still contented with the ending that they gave me.
  • Li Tang is the BEST EX-BOYFRIEND! Of course this wasn’t really hard to guess, right?
  • I don’t think I’ll be recapping any drama anytime soon because nothing piques my interest and I also have to recover from my sleepless nights just because of watching and writing about this drama haha! See you in Jerry Yan’s next project, I guess? 😀 we’ll have to wait for a long time as usual </3 but it was really fun meeting people through the comments and knowing their opinions as well. Zai jian! 🙂

        Well, I guess I was hoping that Haoran still loved Xiangnan despite helping Fangsi. Y’know, he has to help Fangsi because it’s the right thing to do and it’s the only way for Xiangnan to learn. But after dealing Xiangnan with such a blow, he needs to be there for her to stand up again. Afterall, this is a feel-good drama, if everyone, including Xiao Nai and Benjamin ends up together, Haoran and Xiangnan should get a proper ending too! Even if they don’t end up together, I just feel as if I need more closure for their characters haha.

          That’s what I actually thought too! I thought he would still have love left for Xiangnan. Looks like he has had enough so nope 😦 good point and thanks for telling me that! 🙂

    thanx for the recap. i really enjoyed this drama because of Jerry Yan. I only learned of him last year when Loving Never Forgetting popped up on my YT account. I watched this series for 4 days After 2 weeks the Unfogettable Love was aired so i followed this also online (not aired on TFC)..Now am addicted to him, craving for updates about his career especially his love life. lol

    I wish there is an update if he still communicates with Maggie Jiang. I really want them to date for real. It’s about time for him to get married and have kids…:)

      Thank you so much for reading! 🙂 Just like you, I only realized that he’s such an amazing actor last year because Vic Zhou has always been my F4 crush haha! It’s hard to be his fan because it’s not often that we get updates about him. I wouldn’t be surprised if he still communicates with her because Jerry has remained close to most of his former leading ladies (Barbie Hsu, Ella Chen, etc) even when so many years have passed already. As of now, we just know that they’re both single so I hope there’s a chance that Tang and Fangsi could happen in real life 😉

      I’ve been feeling sad about it too knowing that there are no more new episodes! 😦 and yes, I hope that they become a real-life couple as well 😀 thank you for reading! 🙂
