‘I was in actual hell. It was traumatic’: Ryan Reynolds Shares ‘Truly Horrible’ Experience of Korea’s Masked Singer, Says ‘No Westerner had been on that show’

Korean and Japanese television shows play out in a much more extravagant way than the ones you see on everyday TV. Deadpool 3 star Ryan Reynolds went through one such competition called The King of Mask Singer in Korea, and his appearance became an instant hit on the Korean singing competition program.

Shows like The King of Mask Singer are a perfect example of how over the top some of the Korean and Japanese television shows can be. With excess commentary on the move of every participant to the comical detailing of every action- it’s a lot to take in for someone who’s never been exposed to such a piece of media, such as Ryan Reynolds himself!

Ryan Reynolds Describes Horrible Experience Being On Korea’s Masked Singer

It was in the year 2018 when Ryan Reynolds set out to promote the highly anticipated sequel to one of his trademark movies that ended up giving him what he would describe as “actual hell”, which is quite the statement.

During an interview with TODAY, which he gave while promoting the Will Ferrell-starring musical comedy Spirited, Reynolds had a lot to say about his time when he was promoting Deadpool 2 back in 2018. He asked this of himself-

“I’ve been doing this job a long time, and when you go on these international tours, you start to say, ‘What’s the weirdest show we can go on?'”

It seems like Korea’s The King of Mask Singer was the obvious choice here, which as he says, wasn’t a thing in the US at that time. The Green Lantern star described his experience while being in the singing competition for which he had to dress up as a unicorn-

“This was before The Masked Singer was in the U.S. So they said, ‘They have this show called [King of] Mask Singer, which is huge in South Korea. I said, ‘Lord, we’re doing this show. We have to do that show.'”

“At the time, no Westerner had been on that show before, so it was a big surprise when I lost the mask.”

The 46-year-old actor had to perform a rendition of Tomorrow from the musical Annie in the unicorn suit. Little did he know he’d hate every second of it-

“What’s crazy is, I was in actual hell. When I was there, I was like, ‘Why did I sign up to do this? This is horrible! This is truly horrible!’. I don’t even know this song, I don’t know how to do this. It was traumatic.”

Fox eventually made the idea of the TV show come to life in the US with The Masked Singer just a year later in 2019. It would be pretty funny to have him and his friend Hugh Jackman on the show together!

Fans noted that a teaser for the third installment in the Deadpool movie series was shot in the very same location where the short movie titled All Too Well: The Short Film was shot. Some fans took this pretty seriously and thought that the Grammy-winning artist was bound to appear in Reynolds’ movie.

Speaking to ET, the Free Guy actor immediately denied the rumors with a joke-

“If we shoot the next Deadpool film in our house, then that would be that location”

However, he won’t mind having her in the movie! –

“Are you kidding me? I would do anything for that woman. She’s a genius.”

Seeing Taylor Swift team up with Wolverine and Deadpool would be quite the sight. Maybe there’s still some time (and space) to get her in that movie!
