What happens if you try the experiment of doing a dummy booking for something like SFO-ICN-SHE RT first using your travel dates and then maybe changing each date a bit in each direction to explore fare class availability?
Yeah ICN-SFO is available as DL codeshare. SHE-ICN is not. It seems no flight between China and ICN is DL coded. DL.com would happily sell me ICN-SFO nonstop, but not in combination with a China-ICN flight.
It's the same with RT. It seems SFO-China on DL + China-ICN-SFO on KE is simply not priceable, whether ICN-SFO is KE coded or DL coded.

Booking SHE-ICN as a separate ticket works, but isn't ideal since the price is higher - around $1200 which is similar as simply booking two one-ways.
