Here's What Harry Shum Jr. From Glee Is Doing Today

"Glee" is simultaneously one of the most divisive and iconic shows that ever aired. When it was good, it was great, but when the writing took a dive, it became a dumpster fire that even its creator, Ryan Murphy, admitted he couldn't put out. Even so, it remains a cult classic, largely due to its ensemble cast.

While Lea Michele stole center stage as Rachel Berry, many less prominent "Glee" characters proved popular too. A prime example is football-player-turned-dance-extraordinaire Mike Chang. Played by Harry Shum Jr., Mike went from relative obscurity in Season 1 to a series regular in Season 3. While the fan favorite got more screen time than before, a scrapped storyline involving his overbearing parents left audiences wanting more of Mike and getting substantially less.

After the third season of "Glee," Mike faded even further into the background of the series. However, Shum did almost the opposite after leaving William McKinley High School.

Harry Shum Jr. found a lot of success after Glee

The majority of fans still know Harry Shum Jr. as Mike Chang, but in the years since he left the show, the actor's career took quite a few interesting turns. According to IMDb, he starred in a variety of shows, including "Caper" and "Single By 30." He even appeared in the Comedy Central hit, "Awkwafina is Nora from Queens," where he parodied his status as — put simply — man candy.

However, his most notable role since "Glee" is that of Magnus Bane in "Shadowhunters." Based on the "Mortal Instruments" book series, the show sees Shum as an immortal warlock whose mysterious yet reliable presence becomes a staple of the show. "Shadowhunters" was a hit with fans and critics alike, and Shum's onscreen romance with Alec Lightwood (Matthew Daddario) was particularly well-received, ranking at No. 53 on Entertainment Weekly's list of the 100 best TV romances of all time.

Aside from his television work, Shum also appeared in the rom-com "Crazy Rich Asians," based on the novel by Kevin Kwan. His role was only a cameo in a mid-credits scene; however, according to Us Weekly, the character he played has a more substantial role in later books in the series. Additionally, he starred in "All My Life" and "Everything Everywhere All at Once," the latter of which was critically acclaimed. Recently, the star found himself returning to his television roots with a huge new role.

Harry Shum Jr. is going from William McKinley High to Grey Sloan Memorial

"Glee" alum Harry Shum Jr. scored a role on "Grey's Anatomy," known for churning out quite a few household names. Made all the more ironic by his cameo as Doc Hottie on "Nora From Queens," the actor joins the long-running medical drama in Season 19 as one of five new residents, per TV Insider. While the series frequently shifts its ensemble, it's interesting to see Shum — already well-known to many — join the cast alongside relative unknowns Adelaide Kane, Alexis Floyd (whom fans may recognize as Neff from "Inventing Anna"), Niko Terho, and Midori Francis.

His character, Daniel "Blue" Kwan, is described by Deadline as "generous by nature but competitive to a fault, naturally gifted, and used to winning at everything." Like many other characters in the show's long history, Blue comes to Grey Sloan with "a lot to prove." In response to the news, Shum wrote on Instagram that he was "honored to be joining this iconic show."

Shum brings a lengthy resume to the series — we'll have to see what he brings to the operating table.
