Ryan Reynolds was surprised by the baseball fever in Korea
The main characters of the movie 'Deadpool and Wolverine' were impressed by the enthusiasm for Korean baseball.

On the 4th, a press conference for the movie 'Deadpool and Wolverine' was held in Saemunan-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul. Director Sean Levy and actors Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman attended.

'Deadpool and Wolverine' is an action blockbuster that unfolds as Deadpool, who has been living as an ordinary used car dealer after retiring from his career as a hero, faces an unexpected and huge crisis and visits Wolverine, who is his opposite in every way. It is a new work in the 'Deadpool' series that has written a new history for R-rated hero movies, including recording box office profits of $1.56 billion worldwide and achieving the highest opening score ever for a domestic Marvel contract film.

Ryan Reynolds played Deadpool. In the play, after retiring from his career as a hero, Deadpool lives as Wade Wilson, an ordinary used car dealer, and is dragged away by armed Time Allocation Agency (TVA) agents during a birthday party with his friends. After learning that he could lose not only the life he has built but also the precious people around him, he dons the Deadpool suit again and visits Wolverine to prevent this.

Hugh Jackman played Wolverine. In the play, Wolverine was once the best 'X-Man' who saved the world, but after an incident, he wanders around, losing his will to live. Meanwhile, Deadpool, who is his opposite in every way, comes to visit. At first, he ignores Deadpool's requests for help, but after persistent and heartfelt persuasion, he decides to team up with Deadpool.

As soon as they arrived in Korea the day before, they went to Gocheok Dome to watch a baseball game. The three people on the movie promotion tour proposed things they wanted to go and do in each country they visited and promised to do it together. Ryan Reynolds said, "We decided that we would have a cultural experience no matter which country we went to. It could be a specific place. We decided that one person would choose and no one would have the right to refuse. Neither I nor Hugh would know where we were going and we knew the rules of baseball well. “I don’t know, but it was a surprise to us that Sean chose the place.” He continued, "I went into the stadium and watched from a high place. Seeing the baseball game was immersive and I thought it was an important culture in Korea. It was also an unexpected positive surprise. Ice hockey and other sports are famous in Canada, and I have played twice in my life. “I watched a baseball game, and I can confidently say that it was more fun in the US and once in Korea, and I felt just as excited about it.”

Hugh Jackman was impressed by Korea's baseball cheering enthusiasm, saying, "About 5,000 people were singing cheering songs." Ryan Reynolds laughed, saying, "My Apple Watch got a notification that the noise level was too high. The last time was a Taylor Swift concert. Of course, I ignored the notification."

‘Deadpool and Wolverine’ will be released on the 24th.
