Back in May, Bang Chan and Ryan Reynolds struck up an adorable online friendship after Ryan saw Stray Kids' Deadpool-inspired performance on the South Korean television show Kingdom. The actor and the K-pop idol quickly became fast friends and even sent care packages to each other.
The duo finally got to meet this week as part of the press tour for Ryan's upcoming action film Free Guy. After admitting he was "very nervous" to chat with the Deadpool star, Chan asked multiple questions about the film, including Ryan's favorite stunts and the film's overall message.
When the interview was over, however, Ryan got to show his appreciation for the Stray Kids leader. "I love you guys. I'm such a huge fan," he revealed to a bashfully grinning Chan. "Not only do I love what you guys do, but I love how you do it. Because you do it with joy and you do it with authenticity, and you guys do it in inventive ways."
Ryan continued, "You guys really, really nail it, and I'm super proud I get to kind of know you now."
Chan also only had high praise for the actor. "In our perspective, our performance role model is you as well," he replied. "So thank you so much for inspiring us." We stan a supportive and adorable friendship!
