I'd like the ICN-SFO KE nonstop instead, but I simply can't get either, google flights or any OTA to price it no matter what I try.

When I force this itinerary on itasoftware, it shows a price of $5404.

Is there any hope to call DL to get this priced correctly, or does this indicate that there simply isn't a fare available for this itinerary?
Since DL and KE has JV, one would assume that DL should happily put me on ICN-SFO with a similar price to ICN-SEA-SFO.

I had a similar issue previously on a J ticket with CI segments. I could price it at $7300~ but during checkout it failed every time. I called, read the segments, fare classes I see, and they forced it through and were able to get the pricing aligned. I would suggest HUCA till you find an agent willing to take extra time with you. If you are willing to spend this much on a ticket, I have found Delta more than willing to take the time to get the pricing fixed.
