WATCH: Ryan Reynolds sings as a unicorn on South Korean TV
Who would have known that Ryan Reynolds can sing, too?
The “Deadpool” actor recently sang his heart out on a South Korean television show and wowed the audience. He appeared in the show to promote his new Marvel film, “Deadpool 2”.
Reynolds belted out “Tomorrow”, made famous by the hit musical “Annie”, during a “King of Mask Singer” episode which aired on Sunday, May 13.
“King of Masked Singer” contestants need to conceal their identities by wearing elaborate masks.
One of the most popular TV shows in South Korea, “King of Masked Singer” often shines light on lesser known singers, but who are just as talented. The show disregards the identity and careers of the competitors, hence they require contestants to keep their faces hidden as they perform, oftentimes in outrageous and comical outfits.
The show also puts its contestants up against popular Korean idols. Some of the show’s notable idol contestants were Ryeowook of Super Junior, DK of Seventeen, Chen of EXO, Jungkook of BTS, Hani of EXID and Hyolyn of SISTAR.
So, how did Reynolds appear in the show? The actor disguised himself as a colorful unicorn, wearing a glittery cape. In one video, the audience intently listened to the mysterious figure singing his heart out on stage.
When it was time to reveal the singer behind the dreamy unicorn mask, the audience and contestants were starstruck and shrieked.
“I’m so sorry about that song,” Reynolds said about his performance. At one point, the actor asked one judge why his initial guess about the actor’s identity was that of President Donald Trump, for which the judge apologized.
Admitting that he was nervous, Reynolds joked, “I’m wearing an adult diaper.” He was thankful for his appearance on the show, and for being “pushed to my own limits.” JB
