2020 was the year of endless quarantines and lockdowns. It was a year of inertia. And with people’s movement limited, you stayed in one place both literally and figuratively.
But 90 Day Fiance star Deavan Clegg defied it all. Not only did she move back to the USA from Korea, but she also moved on from ex-husband Jihoon Lee. After leaving South Korea in May, Deavan confirmed a relationship with Topher Park in August. A month later, divorce proceedings between Deavan and Jihoon started. Now, Deavan is hinting at one last big announcement to end 2020 with a bang.
Jihoon Lee has been remarkably quiet on social media since he split from Deavan Clegg. Considering the accusations that she made against him, including abusing her daughter, it’s commendable that all Jihoon has said is that he is ashamed of how he was portrayed on the show.
Now that the couple separated and Deavan has moved on with actor Topher Park, their story transitions into an international custody battle. Not that 90 Day Fiance needs to exploit this family further by filming it. But whether you are team Deavan or team Jihoon, the obvious question is what happens next?
Based on her social media posts, there are two key takeaways from Deavan Clegg’s life after filming wrapped for 90 Day Fiance The Other Way. The first is that Deavan is happy in a new relationship with Topher Park. The second is that she and Jihoon Lee had a much more tumultuous relationship than what was shown on screen. One that included alleged abuse of Deavan’s daughter Drascilla.
Deavan moved to South Korea for her second season on the show. Living in a foreign country was a lot more stressful than just navigating culture shocks and living with man that she was unable to communicate with. According to Deavan, she was treated as a “puppet” by the show management. In a recent social media post, Deavan revealed that this mistreatment led her to contemplate taking her own life.
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.
