90 Day Fiance: The Other Way spoilers tease big things ahead for Deavan Clegg and Jihoon Lee. The American woman flies to South Korea to be with her lover and things don’t seem to go so well between her and his family. Added to this, she has a baby on the way. There’s bound to be a lot of culture clash for this pair as Western philosophy meets Eastern tradition. Do they find a way to make it work on the TLC show?
90 Day Fiance: The Other Way – Deavan Clegg Not What Jihoon Lee’s Family Had in Mind
One of the most interesting aspects of the TLC spinoff is that it shows Americans adjusting to the home country of their foreign lovers. It’s this twist that will likely draw existing viewers in. Right out of the gate, there’s a culture clash between Deavan Clegg and Jihoon’s relatives. The fact that she is pregnant with his child only adds to the tension on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way.
Jihoon Lee admits in a spoilers clip that his parents are “embarrassed” of the fact that he got an American woman pregnant. In addition, he adds that their union is unusual in his native S Korea. Even Deavan Clegg admits that she is the worst match for Jihoon Lee in terms of traditional marriage ideals in the Asian country on upcoming 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way episodes.
Cultures Clash for the Pair on TLC
Disapproval is written on Jihoon Lee’s parents’ faces in the 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way teaser. If they hoped he would marry a traditional Korean woman, that’s certainly not in the cards. This new twist will certainly add drama for TLC watchers. Viewers usually see American relatives react to an immigrant love interest. In this case, the mituri (traditional shoes) are on the other foot as Deavan contends with Korean tradition.
At one point in the 90 Day Fiance spoilers promo, things get serious for Deavan Clegg and her Korean love interest Jihoon Lee. She asks him point-blank if he’s with her out of love or just because she is pregnant. Perhaps he feels the disapproval of his parents and feels like he must prove something. On the other hand, the love between them seems genuine – as is the chemistry. That’s obvious since they conceived their child the night they first met IRL.
Jihoon Lee and Fiance Deavan Clegg After 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way
Deavan Clegg recently answered questions about her relationship with Jihoon Lee on Instagram. A viewer asked if she was still in his home land but she skated past that question. But, she reminded the viewer that they should watch the show. However, it’s clear she is still there since all their social pics show them in the Asian nation after 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way cameras were gone.
Deavan Clegg can’t disclose further details due to her TLC NDA. In addition, she already had the baby – and Jihoon and Deavan had a son. A commenter on IG asked her when she can share photos of her son. In typical TLC fashion, Deavan said she won’t be able to share photos until after her season airs. Be on the lookout for that, and be sure to catch the spinoff Monday nights at 9:00 on TLC.
