A new “Devin”, who shares the same name as Deavan Clegg, is about to marry her Korean boyfriend.
- The couple Nick and Devin in the show are strikingly similar to the controversial Deavan-Jihoon pair.
- Nick is nervous because he needs his parents’ permission before he gets married.
- Nick, unlike Jihoon who moved to Korea, will be moving to America. This presents new challenges to the couple.
The 90 Day Fiance couple Devin Hoofman & Seungdo “Nick Ham” reminds viewers of the former reality TV pair Deavan Clegg & Jihoon Lee.
Nick, a 30-year-old man from Korea is the younger brother of Devin. Both are from Arkansas. The viewers were first introduced to them in episode 4 and noticed that they are strikingly similar to Deavan and Jihoon, the controversial couple.
Nick’s origins are South Korea like Jihoon, and Devin shares a name with a Utah woman Deavan. The story of Deavan & Jihoon ended tragically after Deavan accused Jihoon of doing horrible things to Drascilla, her daughter.
Deavan was not happy about Jihoon lying about his savings and job. Deavan returned to America in 2020, claiming Jihoon had not kept in touch since then.
Deavan claims that Jihoon chose to not be involved in the cancer recovery of their son Taeyang. Deavan lives with Topher Park, her boyfriend. Jihoon is not active on social media after losing custody of his son.
Nick and Jihoon Share South Korean Roots
Nick is also from Seoul South Korea. Both met their girlfriends through dating apps. Jihoon debuted at the age of 29 on 90 Day Fiance The Other Way Season 1.
He was a used-phone reseller. Jihoon lived with his parents. Jihoon was in several short-term relationships before Deavan.
He was watching a movie when he found an app with “many pictures of girls.” Jihoon, a curious Jihoon, found Deavan in the app and “super liked” her. He claimed that it is a Korean’s dream to date an American girl.
After three months of online communication, Jihoon flew to America to meet Deavan. Nick, a South Korean moved to Australia to study and work for six years.
Nick met his American girl while working in Australia. Nick hadn’t been with anyone in three years when his friend suggested that he try Tinder.
After meeting Devin, Nick felt “so fortunate”. Nick liked the fact that Devin, like Nick, was an introvert but also cute and friendly with an athletic body.
Nick’s Parents Disapprove of Devin: Deavan’s Struggles to Win Them Over
Nick is in South Korea again on the show and this is Devin’s very first visit. Nick wants to take Devin to South Korea to show her the country she’s always wanted to visit.
He will even make a formal proposal to her. Nick must first get his parents’ permission before he gets married. He is worried that his parents will compare Devin to Korean girls.
Nick will not be allowed to travel to the U.S. if Devin fails to impress Nick’s parents during their first meeting.
The trailer of 90 Day Fiance Season 10 shows Nick and Devin eating dinner with Nick’s parents. He talks about how his parents’ blessings are important for his future together with Devin.
Nick’s mom asks what will happen if Nick goes to America. Devin cries when he hears this. Deavan and Jihoon’s parents never got along.
They called her their “worst dream” because of her tattoos, and the fact that she never graduated from university and was a mother.
Deavan had a hard time adapting to the Korean culture and customs. It’s hoped that Devin, her namesake, won’t have the same experience.
Korean Man Relocating to America: A New Journey Begins
Nick and Devin dated in Australia for two years, but soon she began to miss her family and friends back in Searcy. Nick could not imagine living in two countries.
The 90 Day Fiance couple therefore decided to get married and apply for a K-1 Visa. Nick is worried because he knows that there’s no Korean community or diversity in Searcy.
Nick is also scared by Devin’s warning about racism in Searcy. Jihoon did not have to deal with the same issue because Deavan moved to Korea in 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way.
Nick will face a whole new set of problems when he is in the U.S. for 90 Day Fiance. Maybe their storyline has a happier ending than Jihoon’s and Deavan’s, who had to go through a difficult divorce and custody fight.
