Jihoon Lee was often apologizing to Deavan Clegg on 90 Day Fiance The Other Way. And her mother. She had the kind of aura that brought out the frantic in Jihoon, who was berated for not properly tending to all of Deavan’s shortcomings and disappointments. Granted, he did lie about his job and financial stability multiple times, but that doesn’t mean he is responsible for changing Deavan’s entire negative outlook on life. Also, Drascilla running into the street was so not on him. He was not her disciplinarian for three plus years.
Deavan’s social media indicated that she had already moved on from Jihoon in real time, before their wedding even aired. Maybe we could have hoped, for the children’s sake, that it had worked out between them. However, Deavan’s fight or flight mentality makes one question whether she had ever planned to return to Korea. Jihoon may have been immature and/or got a bad edit, but most viewers feel badly for him in lieu of the fact that he has not seen his son since Deavan returned to the USA.
As the season starts to draw to a close, Jihoon joined some of his cast mates in reflecting on lessons learned and thanking fans for their support.
“Looks like the show’s finally over,” Jihoon wrote on an Instagram post that reality TV blogger John Yates shared, “I didn’t watch the show, but I could check through DM. I think I learned a lot from marriage and divorce.”

Deavan has since moved on with LA based actor Topher Park, and is happily creating a new family unit. Jihoon, meanwhile, has been left with his reflections. And he calls this time in his life, a “turning point.”
“I was ashamed to see myself on the show,” Jihoon wrote, “nevertheless, I sincerely thank you for your support. This show and divorce have been a turning point in my life. I feel like I need to work harder with this. Thank you so much for always supporting me.”
Will either Jihoon or Deavan return to 90 Day Fiance with a new partner?
