Dodgers starter Hyun-jin Ryu is a big star in his native Korea, which is why he stars in goofy commercials like this one. 

Last fall, Ryu starred in an ad for ramen that also featured a fake Clayton Kershaw. Now he's rapping to promote credit cards for a Korean bank. His outfit is spot-on and the Mission Impossible theme makes for a pretty good beat.

Hyun-jin Ryu wore a hat with Juan Uribe's name on it

Ryu is currently on the disabled list with a shoulder injury. He'll be back soon enough, but it's nice to know that he has a potential career as a K-pop star waiting for him when his career is over.
