“How is this a job?” Ryan Reynolds recently asked on Instagram, referring to his current publicity tour to promote his upcoming “Deadpool & Wolverine.” Exactly what we thought, Ry.

Reynolds, who reprises his role as Wade Wilson, aka Deadpool, for the fourth time on screen in the sequel, recently visited both Shanghai, China and Seoul, South Korea with his co-star Hugh Jackman (a.k.a. Logan/Wolverine) and their director Shawn Levy.

Highlights of their adventure include giant blow-up dolls, an impromptu baseball game, a meet-and-greet with a K-pop band and an epic water gun fight in front of a huge crowd.

On Friday, Reynolds posted a carousel of photos to his verified Instagram from the Waterbomb Festival in Korea, which took place on a stage and saw the two stars getting soaked.

In the caption, the “Proposal” actor called the festival “the coolest, most charming mix of K-pop, water fights, dancing and joy.”

“Promoting a movie should be WORK, but Marvel is paying us to go on the best vacation of our lives,” he continued. “Someone is definitely getting fired. Probably Kevin Feige.”

Jackman and Reynolds continue their sarcastic banter with each other throughout the film, maintaining (to a certain extent) their cheerful, seemingly adversarial relationship that belies a genuine bromance-like bond (they’ve actually known each other for over a decade, since starring together in 2009’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” which featured Reynolds’ somewhat awkward Deadpool debut).

Jackman even reposted a story from Instagram user Avengergram, who wrote in a caption under a photo of toy figurines of the title couple, “Seeing all these ‘Deadpool & Wolverine’ press releases about the tour is like watching a romantic comedy.”

The next destination of the amazing superhero group is Berlin, Germany.

“Deadpool & Wolverine” hits theaters on July 26.
