After Deadpool showed his talents in modern dance alongside Mariah Carey during a clip for the film’s sequel soundtrack, the character’s interpreter, Ryan Reynolds, impressed South Korea with his voice during his participation in King of Masked Singer, a country program.
In the program, artists take the stage wearing masks and perform blindly, so that people can discover who they are just by their voices and not be judged by their appearance.
