Jihoon Defends Deavan Clegg

Jihoon Lee’s message for Taeyang Scuti Lee definitely drew attention to Deavan Clegg and their current situation. Some fans responded to Jihoon’s post by calling Deavan things like “heartless” for taking away the little boy.

Unexpectedly, Jihoon Lee quickly defended his 90 Day Fiance wife, pointing out they have a co-parenting and visitation plan.  But, that plan depends on Deavan keeping up her end and actually letting Jihoon take part in his son’s life.

Jihoon Lee seems confident that Deavan will bring Taeyang to Korea in the near future. One fan said she’ll believe it when she sees it. Jihoon Lee added that regardless of their issues, he and his wife remain “friends and parents”. Jihoon’s sudden change of tune definitely came as a surprise to many.

However, many parents are not surprised. They know that when one parent has control of the child, then the other parent must “play nice” in order to have involvement in their child’s life. Some speculate that Jihoon is taking the higher road and letting Deavan throw him under the bus so he will have a chance to see Taeyang again.
