Deavan Clegg said her relationship with Jihoon Lee was not what viewers saw on screen.

Earlier this week, the 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way Answering questions from fans on her Instagram Live, Alum claimed that the way the series was produced — and the way she chose to portray the relationship — didn’t always match what happened in real life.

According to ScreenRant, when a fan asked if any of their on-screen relationships were scripted, Deavan replied in a since-expired Instagram story: “Some were fake. Some were real. Season 1…96% was fake. Season 2 would I say 50/50 drama was real.”

Deavan met Jihoon through a dating app and later flew from South Korea to the United States to meet her. On their first meeting, Deavan became pregnant with their first child.

Deavan claimed this week that she “never moved to Korea in season 1”, despite the series labeling that as its main storyline at the time. (TLC representatives did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.)

She eventually moved to South Korea to live near Jihoon and his family, and the couple later welcomed a second son.

Deavan also got real about the couple’s decision to present the relationship on the show in a way that was inconsistent with their off-camera reality.

“If you want me to be [100 percent] “Honestly, I don’t think there was any romantic connection to begin with,” she wrote. “We both felt this way and had already talked about it several times.”

She explained: “We did everything for the show because he was in debt and I had to pay medical bills. When I moved there, we never slept in the same bed and pretended for YouTube and the show.”

She also revealed that even after they decided to go their separate ways, the couple continued to film the show.

“I was planning to return home in March when COVID hit and my flight was cancelled,” she said. “We both ended the relationship in November [2019] but had decided to finish the season. We both knew we had to keep shooting.”
