The British actor, who is best known for his roles in "Thor" and "The Avengers," proved that he's a true entertainer during a recent appearance on a South Korean talk show, which has gone viral.
The 32-year-old charmer showed off some crazy — crazy good — dance moves on the show, which he taped in Seoul earlier this week. With K-pop pumping, the fan fave stood up and slowly and dramatically raised his arms in true Loki form. But then he dropped the character completely and launched into a full-on, one-man dance party, showing off some impressive footwork.
His moves were smooth and included spins and tricky foot to hand taps. To say the audience was eating it up is an understatement. They were screaming. And, sure to impress his many fangirls, Hiddleston didn't even seem to break a sweat.
As if that little bit of Internet awesomeness wasn't enough, Hiddleston went on to sing in another bit. Channeling his inner King of Pop, he sang Michael Jackson's "Man in the Mirror."
"This is what I sing when I go to karaoke bars," he told the audience, quipping, "I apologize if it's not as good as Michael."
His rendition of the song was a fun one with the star copying all of Jackson's trademark sounds in the opening. Although it couldn't touch his dance moves, that performance, too, received a rock star reception from the delighted fans.
Hiddleston is in Seoul to promote "Thor: The Dark World," which opens in Asia a week before it hits American theaters, and is also scheduled to appear on "Saturday Night Live Korea" this weekend. (The actor is only the third non-Korean star, after Miranda Kerr and Jason Mraz, to appear on the sketch show.) He shared a behind-the-scenes photo from the set this week which showed him facing off with Thor.
"Bumped into an old friend at SNL Korea," the actor captioned the funny photo, which he posted on WhoSay Tuesday.
Fingers crossed one of the sketches includes a Thor-Loki dance-off. We can already predict the winner.
