Having déjà vu? Deavan Clegg and Jihoon Lee first graced our television screens while appearing on season 1 of the TLC spinoff, 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way, and now they will be returning for season 2. Despite their language barrier and cultural differences, Deavan and Jihoon overcame the obstacles they faced and managed to come out even stronger. Learn more about the lovebirds below.
How Did They Meet?
Like many other couples from the franchise, the duo met on a dating app. Their chemistry was instantaneous, leading them to talk on a daily basis for three months. After getting serious, Jihoon flew to America to see her in person. She was from Salt Lake City, Utah, while he was from South Korea.
When Did They Get Married?
The pair tied the knot while making their debut on the show in 2019. Jihoon and Deavan were originally married on paper, but they later had a traditional Korean wedding known as a “Paebaek” with his loved ones present for the special occasion. Afterward, they had a traditional American wedding so her family could also attend.
Why Did They Move to South Korea?
In October, the brunette beauty shared the reason while taking to Instagram with a statement about her relocation. “We have decided to move to Korea so I could be a stay at home mom and raise the children. This wasn’t an option in America until Jihoon could learn English. As well, I was in danger,” she explained. “And America became a very unsafe place for me due to a family member.”
How Many Kids Do They Have?
Because she has full custody of her daughter, Drascilla lives with the couple.
What Are They Up to Now?
Deavan is currently in the United States with the kids to visit her relatives for a month or so, according to her latest update via YouTube. It won’t be long until she is reunited with Jihoon!
The new season of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way premieres at 9/8c on June 8.
