90 Day Fiancé star Jihoon Lee has resurfaced on Instagram after seven months to share a terrifying update about his son Taeyang who has leukemia.
South Korean 90 Day Fiancé star Jihoon Lee returned to Instagram to share a worrisome update about his and Deavan Clegg’s son Taeyang who has been undergoing treatment for cancer. Fans know Jihoon from 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way in which he featured with baby mama Deavan from Utah. Deavan, who’d gotten pregnant with Jihoon’s baby on their first date, was reluctant about moving to Korea when he didn’t have a job or savings. The couple did get married but kept arguing about Jihoon being irresponsible, and eventually split. Deavan has been in the U.S. for over a year and recently gave birth to a new baby with her boyfriend Topher Park.
Meanwhile, the 90 Day Fiancé fan favorite Jihoon has been absent from Instagram for the longest time. His last IG post was a selfie that Jihoon posted just days before Deavan revealed Taeyang was diagnosed with b-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia, a type of blood cancer. While Deavan started a fundraiser and has been posting concerning updates with photos and videos of Taeyang who’s now undergoing chemotherapy, Jihoon didn’t bother writing anything about his ailing son. However, on Friday, Jihoon shared a screenshot of Deavan’s IG story from November 20 in which she spoke about Taeyang being rushed to the hospital with a “deadly” high fever. Jihoon didn’t write anything of his own on the story, but the screenshot was taken two hours after 90 Day Fiancé cast member Deavan posted it a week ago.
What 90 Day Fiancé Fans Are Saying After Jihoon’s Instagram Comeback
The post was shared on Reddit where fans wrote comments such as, “this is so freaking sad” and sent their “prayers” for Taeyang’s recovery. Rainbow-breaths wrote, “Oh this breaks my heart. Did not know he was sick. Prayers to Taeyang.” However, the majority of fans wondered why Deavan herself had posted a picture of her child in their “most vulnerable position” in public. Fans agreed it was inappropriate for the image to be shared online, even though they sent healing prayers for the 3-year-old child. Taeyang had a fever of 102 when 90 Day Fiancé star Deavan took him to the hospital because it could have proven to be deadly for a child going through chemotherapy.
Taeyang had to get a blood transfusion despite having gotten one recently. Deavan wrote that the thought of how Taeyang wouldn’t have woken up in the morning had she not brought him to the hospital will continue to haunt her. Taeyang’s transfusion was eventually a success, his fever dropped, and his condition drastically improved the next day. It cannot be said why Jihoon posted the scary update about Taeyang as his very first attempt at talking about his son’s cancer, especially when Deavan claimed that Jihoon blocked her since she came back to America from Korea, and he didn’t even wish Taeyang on his third birthday.
It appears Jihoon was given a year by the judge to fight for his son’s custody, so no one has taken his son away from him. As per Deavan, Jihoon wants nothing to do with Taeyang. Fans also noticed how Jihoon has deleted photos of Taeyang from his Instagram feed. This did give rise to speculations about Jihoon really not caring about his son at all, as his Instagram is a gallery of how he’s gotten one makeover after another with plastic surgery. But then again, does Jihoon sharing this story about Taeyang with 90 Day Fiancé fans suggest he and Deavan have mended things?
