90 Day Fiance: The Other Way’s new cast member Deavan Clegg, wife of Jihoon Lee, shaded Jay Smith and his tattoo abilities in a recent interview. Deavan is from Salt Lake City and her now-husband and baby daddy Jihoon hails from South Korea. The couple came in a little late to the season because TLC reportedly cast them later.
Deavan Clegg is a model with many tattoos. It seems South Korea is very conservative when it comes to tattoos. Up until recently, they weren’t even legal, Deavan revealed. Her many tats were certainly a concern for Jihoon’s parents. Deavan talked to Jon Yates on IG recently. She shared her opinion on the tattoo work of 90 Day Fiance alum Jay Smith.
90 Day Fiance: Deavan Clegg Talks Tattoos and South Korea
On Monday night’s episode of 90 Day Fiance:The Other Way, viewers finally met new couple Deavan Clegg and Jihoon Lee. The couple had been in the promos, but no episodes so far. So, Monday night was the first time viewers saw their story. Deavan and Jihoon met on a dating app.
The South Korean phone salesman was smitten with the tattooed beauty. Later, he came to America to visit and the two really clicked. So much so that Deavan ended up pregnant.
Then, Deavan Clegg trekked to South Korea to meet Jihoon’s parents. His parents said they found the 90 Day Fiance new star quiet and unhappy. They also weren’t so sure about all her tattoos. Deavan says that tattoos are pretty taboo in South Korea, and just recently became legal. Before that, it was a very underground operation. You would sneak to a sketchy place and then to an even more hidden place. Now that it’s legal, standards are set high by the government for the artists.

The Other Way’s Deavan Clegg Disses Jay’s Tattoo Work on Live Video
Deavan Clegg was asked if she thought fellow 90 Day Fiance cast mate, Jay Smith, could get a job there doing tattoos in South Korea. Clegg says the answer is a definite “no”. Deavan said she’s seen Jay’s work and says it’s not up to par. Turns out that South Korea, because of strict controls, has some of the highest quality tattoo artist in the world.
Ashley Martson’s husband, Jay Smith, has recently been under fire for indulging in some unprofessional conduct with one of his tattoo customers, as fans saw in Sunday night’s 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After.

Deavan Dishes on Ranch Dressing and Defends Herself against Critics
In clips of the new show 90 Day Fiance: The Other way, viewers saw Deavan Clegg questioning Jihoon about if there is ranch dressing in South Korea. She explains that it came with pizza. But was watery and weak and nothing like the creamy favorite we have here in the US. Finally, Deavan said the food is kind of bland. Koreans don’t use much salt on fries. And they are kind of soggy.
After Monday night’s show, she was surprised at how people attacked her parenting skills. And said that her photos were edited. Deavan admits the photos were edited because they were from modeling portfolios. Hence, others criticized her parenting skills of admitted wild child 3 yr old Drusilla. Moreover, she clapped back at her critics on Instagram. Fellow cast member Tiffany Franco told her not to worry. That it was probably old people with nothing to do.
Several 90 Day Fiance celebs popped into the chat. Clegg has met Pillow Talk breakout stars David Toborowsky and Annie Suwan. She loved spending time with the couple and called them genuine and nice. She is also a fan of Jon Walters and current co-star Corey Rathgeber, who both dropped into the chat. Tune into 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way to see more of Deavan Clegg and her tattoos. The show airs Monday nights on TLC.
