Warning! The following contains spoilers for the 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way episode "Forgiven, Not Forgotten." Read at your own risk!
Deavan Clegg and Jihoon Lee have been the hot topic of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way Season 2, as Deavan's trip to South Korea has been ripe with controversy. Jihoon tried to make amends by apologizing for not being upfront about his finances before she had moved with the children to South Korea, but the conversation soon went sour after Jihoon became frustrated with Deavan and the digital translator.
Ultimately the whole situation ended with Deavan demanding Jihoon pull all the money he had given his mother in savings and delivering it to her in cash within the hour. Deavan must have caught some flak for her reaction in the episode because she took to social media to address some of the comments from fans and shared what they didn't see in the episode in regards to the fight.
Let's talk about what you didn't see last night. I was being yelled at by all parties and scared and began begging just to go home. After this Jihoon left and his mother continued to yell at me. I began to shake and wanted to go home. I went outside. What you guys don't know [was] I was outside for one hour. I was overheated and couldn't breathe or talk. You guys didn't see my PA or Producer taking care of me giving me water and patting me down with wet cloths. Everyone making fun of my shaking, it's not funny. I was having a real [sic] panick attack and didn't know how to control it. I was slowly blacking out and my amazing PA did everything she could to keep me awake. Jihoon witnessed this and just threw money on my lap. At this point I was defeated and felt hopeless. I want to thank production for taking great care of me and making sure I was ok. As for my PA you know who you are and thank you for taking care of me until I got home safe to my apartment.
90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way may have condensed the argument and ATM run for time, according to Deavan Clegg, and obviously the ordeal was a lot for her to handle. Deavan seemingly threw Jihoon under the bus a bit for not being more nurturing during the moment, which could be a sign the two are currently going through some trouble.
We can only speculate on that, but we do now have some idea of what all Deavan Clegg has provided for the relationship financially. Deavan has mentioned on 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way that she has already put a lot of money into ensuring the children and Jihoon were okay, and even dropped the alleged dollar amount of what she spent while Jihoon was holding money with his mother.
Let's see: Worked 60 hours a week, paid for Vegas, paid for travel back and forth, paid for hospital bills, paid for food for him, paid for housing/drinks. $50,000. It wasn't about his money. I just wanted some proof he actually saved some. I make my own money and always have, it's about if he actually did the things he said. [I] was told 'I speak English, I have two jobs, I finished college, I've saved $20,000 for a house.' I have a lot of money over, so no, it wasn't for his money I don't care for it. It was the fact I wanted proof he didn't lie to me.
The point being Deavan didn't demand to see the money from Jihoon because she needed it, but because she wanted to make sure he had not fed her another lie. It's hard not to see her reasoning considering much of what Jihoon had told her prior to the trip regarding finances had been a lie, and there have been some other falsehoods in the past as well. Jihoon Lee does have a decent grasp of English, though it's fair of Deavan to say he may not have been as fluent as he led on.
It's hard not to notice how hard Deavan Clegg is being on husband Jihoon Lee, and the timing is very convenient. Followers recently noticed that Jihoon has scrubbed his page of all pictures with his family, and had unfollowed Deavan on Instagram. As for Deavan, she's been in the United States with the children since July, and while her mother Elicia Clegg alleged Deavan and the kids can't return to South Korea because of travel restrictions, it seems there may be more to the story.
