Better late than never is what went through my mind at this past weekend’s press conference for Jerry Yan‘s upcoming new drama My Best Ex-boyfriend. The feeling isn’t caused by Jerry coming back with a new drama but what he finally admitted to during the media question session. When asked about how he deals with his exes and specifically about long rumored top model former girlfriend Lin Chi Ling, a question that isn’t out of the blue since the drama is about exes getting a second chance again, Jerry admitted that he’s still on good terms with Chi Ling since they had a lot of good memories together and he doesn’t want to ruin that beautiful shared experience from the past by being bitter later.
Jerry also admitted that he was very young back then and at the start of his career so he always put his career first, and often neglected his other half. Now he would be much more considerate of her feelings and needs were he to date in the future. Jerry is a renowned sourpuss who hates media events, and usually wears a pissed off glower and hardly ever answers questions other than with clipped two syllables, so his good spirits and smiling candor at this event took everyone off guard. I guess Jerry just proved that he really has matured and is more than capable of doing the promotional parts of his entertainment projects. While it’s been years since Jerry and Chi Ling were linked together, it’s still nice to finally hear confirmation that they did date as closure for a very pretty coupling that unfortunately wasn’t meant to go all the way.
