    The Korean title translates from King Of Masked Singer and has been airing since 2015. You can find it streaming on KOCOWA!

    And in case you didn't know something else, Ryan Reynolds (read: Canada's Sweetheart) visited the Masked Singer stage back in 2018 while promoting Deadpool 2 in South Korea.

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

    Unfortunately, though, Ryan has now revealed that he was "in actual hell" during his time on the show.

    It's safe to assume that seeing Ryan Reynolds on another singing competition show isn't going to happen in the near future... but one can dream. At least, we can hope to run into him at a hockey game though!
