’90 Day Fiancé’: Jihoon Thinks Deavan Has Some Very Bizarre Sleeping Habits When it Comes to Her Kid
One of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way’s newest couples is Jihoon and Deavan. The pair’s premiere episode aired on June 24, and it didn’t take too long for fans to get invested in their story. A surprising pregnancy resulted in romance on the other side of the planet, and now Deavan is struggling with meeting Jihoon’s more traditionally-minded parents for the first time. To add to the difficulty of the situation, when the couple finally gets some time together alone, Jihoon realizes that Deavan has some strange sleeping habits.
The surprise pregnancy
The new 90 Day Fiancé couple come from radically different backgrounds. Deavan is 22 and a single mother from Salt Lake City, Utah. Jihoon is 29 and a used phone dealer in South Korea. Deavan and Jihoon met via an international dating app, and allegedly talked every day for three months before deciding to meet up.
Jihoon was suspicious of Deavan at first, however. “I was kind of suspicious before leaving,” said Jihoon. “I thought it might be a scam. I even suspected illegal organ trafficking. I thought they might take my organs.”
Deavan claims she got pregnant from the couple’s first night spent together. “The day Jihoon was actually leaving for Korea, I did not feel good. Six positive tests later, I’m pregnant. I instantly assumed I’d never see Jihoon again,” she said. Jihoon ended up reaching out to Deavan, however, and suggested they get married.
The first challenge the 90 Day Fiancé couple faced was earning Jihoon’s parents’ blessing for their marriage. Deavan explained that this is a big deal in Korean culture. “In Korean culture, it is super important for the parents to give their blessing. If I’m not up to Jihoon’s parents’ standards and they think I’m not good enough for their son, we can’t get married,” explained Deavan.
“My parents’ first impression to Deavan…not good,” confessed Jihoon on his premiere episode. Jihoon’s father went on to add, “I didn’t believe that she could get pregnant so fast.”
Jihoon’s parents are not pleased that he got a foreign woman pregnant, and are equally unimpressed with Deavan’s tattoos, which are still considered relatively taboo in South Korea. To many viewers, it seemed as if Deavan was not who Jihoon’s parents had in mind when it came to marriage.
Deavan’s sleeping requirements
Jihoon and his parents took a trip to Las Vegas from South Korea to have a group vacation with Deavan and her daughter, Drascilla. When Jihoon’s parents finally leave for the night and give Deavan and Jihoon some space, Jihoon thinks it’s their time to finally get some intimacy.
Jihoon crawls into bed and says he’s tired, and Deavan looks confused. She asks him to go “get the baby.” Equally confused, Jihoon leans forward and awkwardly rubs Deavan’s baby bump. Not quite right Jihoon. She meant her daughter, Drascilla.
“She has to sleep in the middle tonight,” says Deavan. Jihoon seems shocked, repeating what Deavan said.
Jihoon expresses his confusion to Deavan, saying, “When I watch the American movies, daughter and son, they has a bed. Dad say good night. Goodnight kiss, and another room.”
“Well, yeah, she’s never not slept with me. I slept with my parents until I was 7,” says Deavan. Jihoon looks shocked and disappointed. He asks Deavan how they’re going to find alone time together.
“You just go in another room,” replies Deavan. Jihoon seems bummed, but accepts it.
