Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds, who plays Marvel superhero Deadpool in the upcoming blockbuster “Deadpool 2,” communicated with his Korean fans in a live broadcast held via Naver’s V app Wednesday.

In the broadcast, the actor revealed his experience of seeing his character’s costume for the first time.

“I went to this place in California and a man was wearing the Deadpool suit. When the light was shed on it, the suit looked really cool,” he said. “I cried as soon as I saw it because my dream had come true. I had mixed feelings.”

Reynolds, however, said the joy of his dream coming true did not last so long.

“It is a very cool suit but when I first wore it, I wanted to take it off as soon as possible,” he said. “It felt as if I was locked in a coffin and I was also frightened. It was summer back then so it was very very hot. It was not easy to wear the suits while filming in the scorching weather.”

“It got comfortable as I kept moving in it. Now it is comfortable ... I can wear it for days,” he said.

“Deadpool 2” tells the story of the superhero Deadpool who involuntarily teams up with Cable, another superhero, to battle with evil. It is set to hit cinemas here on May 16.

Chansung of 2PM
Chansung of boy band 2PM communicated with his fans in a live broadcast held via Naver’s V app Wednesday.

“I’m on my way back to the office after performing in the musical ‘Smoke,’” the singer said opening up the broadcast.

“This musical ‘Smoke’ is based on the works of poet Yi Sang,” he said. “I think the musical is very difficult to understand -- I too thought this was very difficult when I first watched it -- but if you watch it I guess you will be able to enjoy it.”

In the broadcast, he also hinted at a surprise viewing of the musical by his 2PM bandmates.

“My bandmates said they would come to watch me performing but they never told me when they will come. I guess they do love surprise visits,” he said.

Korean modern poet Yi Sang is one of the most famous avant-garde writers of the colonial era. The musical “Smoke” was inspired by “Ogamdo No. 15” (Crow’s Eye View poem No. 15), a cryptic poem with using the mirror as a motif.

In the musical, Chansung plays the role of Hae, a boy who dreams of the sea.

“Smoke” will run through May 28 at Uniplex in Daehangno, Seoul.

(Naver V app)
Project girl group WJMK communicated with its fans in a live broadcast held via Naver’s V app Wednesday.

WJMK consists of Seola and Luda of girl group WJSN and Choi Yoo-jung and Kim Do-yeon of girl group Weki Meki.

“I’m worried and also excited about what you will think and whether you will like WJMK. We will work hard to show a good performance,” Seola said about the project group.

“I wish to show new facets of ourselves through this kind of work,” Choi said.

In the broadcast, Luda revealed that Seola used to be a fan of Kim even before their collaboration.

“She (Seola) said she would get her phone number before we first met,” Luda said. “I wanted to ask for her phone number but I couldn’t yet. I will ask her after this broadcast,” Seola said.

WJMK is scheduled to release a single album in June.
