90 Day Fiance stars Jihoon and Deavan

Shortly after fans found out about Jihoon and Deavan’s separation, she made a controversial post. Rumors had already been going around about Deavan having a new boyfriend. Her new man is reportedly actor Christopher “Topher” Park. She followed up those rumors by posting an image of a man holding her son, Taeyang. While the head of the boyfriend was cropped, fans soon confirmed that this was Topher. The image showed the Los Angeles-based actor wearing the same shirt as baby Taeyang.

On seeing the post, 90 Day Fiance fans accused Deavan of taking Taeyang away from his father. They criticized the fact she had left Lee alone in South Korea. Deavan responded to fans’ comments by sharing that Jihoon refused to look after Taeyang. She also noted he had blocked her on social media. The 90 Day Fiance star also noted that Jihoon’s parents have not tried to contact her. Moreover, she said, “Jihoon wants to forget and pretend we never had a baby so ask him.”

Jihoon responds to Deavan’s words

Having seen Deavan’s post, Jihoon makes a long and rambling post on Instagram. He posted a photo of little Taeyang. Obviously using a translator, Jihoon begins by writing, “I can’t speak all my feelings in English.” Lee continues by writing that followers see him as a fool. However, he says he thinks of Taeyang every day. While he can’t see his son right now, he spends his day “focusing on other things.”

Jihoon then directly refers to Topher Park and how he seems to be raising Taeyang. He writes, “The reality is terrible, I know all this sh*t. Like he’s going to have a new father.” Lee mentions there has been no divorce. He then responded to Deavan’s claim he has blocked her. Lee wrote he doesn’t want to get involved in their lives, so he blocked them all. He said he has never pretended to be a victim and is just a normal person.

Jihoon knows he has taken an extreme step by blocking Deavan and her family, but he explains why. He wrote that he has done this to “organize his mind-set.” No doubt, he wants to avoid seeing similar posts by Deavan and the heartbreak they bring to him. Lee added, “Everyone, just watch all the results at Tell-All.” Jihoon ends by writing, “I will never forget my son, and love him forever.”

Is sympathy building for Jihoon?

All along, fans have taken sides in this complicated relationship. Jihoon was criticized for his part-time jobs and lack of money. Many haters blamed Jihoon for not providing for his family. However, once they see how Deavan and her mother, Elicia treated Jihoon, he began gaining sympathy.

There has always been a problem with Jihoon’s lack of English. His translator app is famous for mistranslating his words. However, now many fans are supporting Lee. They write that no one believes Deavan anymore and tell him not to worry. Another follower pointed out that “Karma is gonna get Deavan.”

The obviously heartbroken father followed up his lengthy post on his Instagram Story. In the post, he asks Deavan when she will stop “this childish social media fight?”


90 Day Fiance fans are likely eagerly awaiting the Tell-All, where they will no doubt hear both sides of the story. Fans of the TLC reality show are also wondering if Topher Park (pictured above) will feature on the Tell-All. Reportedly, before he wasn’t interested in being on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, but who knows?

90 Day Fiance: The Other Way is currently on midseason break and returns to TLC in October.
