This may come as a surprise to some, but Hollywood actor Ryan Reynolds is actually one of the biggest K-Pop fans around. The actor, known for roles such as Marvel anti-hero Deadpool, has on numerous occasions shown his love for K-Pop and even has some great friendships with a few idols.
Here are 5 times Ryan Reynolds proved he was a K-Pop fan…
1. When he did a photoshoot with HyunA
For the 166th volume of HIGHCUT, he did a photoshoot, dressed as Deadpool, with HyunA.
He later affectionately posed with a copy of one of the photos and posted it on Instagram.
2. His friendship with EXO
Technically, Ryan Reynolds is actually an honorary member of EXO.
It all started when, in 2019, Reynolds met EXO at an event in Seoul for his Netflix film 6 Underground. After that, we have gotten a lot of interactions with him and the group.

Chanyeol, who is a big fan of Reynold’s portrayal as Deadpool, shared a selfie with him with the caption, “Successful fan.” Reynolds then reposted the photo, announcing that he was now “in the band.”
While we’re still waiting for his official debut with EXO, he has supported the other members in their recent comeback.
We even got an update from the 10th member of EXO, Ryan Reynolds 😂
