Ryan Reynolds recalls one job that was 'actual hell': 'It was traumatic'

Ryan Reynolds is taking a trip down memory lane.

On Monday’s episode of the "Today Show," Reynolds, 46, recalled his 2018 experience on South Korea’s adaption of the reality singing competition show, "The Masked Singer."

"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 know this song. I don't know how to do this,’" he shared. "It was traumatic."

"What's crazy is I was in actual hell," Reynolds continued.

"The Adam Project" star was disguised in a unicorn costume, with a sparkly cape as he sang "Tomorrow" from the classic film "Annie."

Host Hoda Kotb brought Reynolds' performance up while he was promoting his upcoming holiday musical, "Spirited."

"Your singing skills have been on display many, many times," Kotb told Reynolds before co-host Savannah Guthrie asked why he was featured on "King of Masked Singer" to begin with.

"I've been doing this job a long time, and you go on these international tours, and you start saying, 'What's the weirdest show we can go on?'" Reynolds shared.

"And at the time, this was before ‘The Masked Singer’ was in the U.S. So they said, 'They have this show called ‘The Masked Singer’ which is huge in South Korea.' I said, 'We're doing this show. We have to do that show.'"

Both the audience and judges in South Korea were in awe when Reynolds removed his mask on the competition show.

"Hello, everybody. I'm so sorry about that song," Reynolds joked with the crowd at the time.
