Li Shin is quite the power player on DAYS OF OUR LIVES so some viewers might still want to know more about the guy. The character first appeared in the DAYS digital series “Chad & Abby in Paris” back in 2019, and then actor Remington Hoffman brought Li over to DAYS proper in April 2020. After some sporadic recurring appearances, he then became involved in some front-burner romance and scheming! Here’s what you need to know…
Determined to follow in the footsteps of his father, Wei Shin, Li Shin became the newest board member of DiMera Enterprises. After Juliet and her assistant, Sylvie, accused Chad DiMera of assault, Li fired him, producing evidence that looked pretty damning. However, when Chad found evidence proving his innocence, he won his way back onto the board and had Juliet fired.
Li arrived in Salem in April 2020 to decide whether Chad or Gabi Hernandez would become CEO of DiMera Enterprises. Gabi was upset when he picked Chad and even more upset when he removed her as head of GabiChic. A few months later, he came back and worked with Gabi on a deal while Chad was out of town. She offered to help him close a deal with an investor but needing a blood DiMera, they worked with Jake Lambert. Li took a shine to Jake and when Chad was involved in a public scandal for cheating on his wife, Li replaced Chad with Jake in the CEO chair.
When EJ DiMera came back to town, he took control at DiMera and shared the CEO position with Chad, forcing Li to remove Jake. After some musical chairs in the CEO office, Gabi was reinstated to the position, and Li turned his casual flirting with her into something more. Although it began as a casual sexual relationship, he soon popped the question, determined to make her his wife.
When Li found out that Dr. Rolf had resurrected Stefan DiMera, he tried to delay it while he persuaded Kristen DiMera to get the mad scientist to scramble Stefan’s memories so he had no memories of his love for Gabi. When Stefan was awakened and returned to society, Li was pleased to see him brush Gabi off… though less pleased to see Gabi continuing to try and jog his memories! Things became further complicated when his younger sister, Wendy Shin, arrived from Alaska demanding a better job at DiMera in Salem!
Stay tuned to see what happens next!
