Stray Kids and Ryan Reynolds have a long history of supporting each other. Their relationship started with Stray Kids’ iconic Kingdom: Legendary War performance inspired by the movie Deadpool, which Ryan Reynolds plays the titular character in.
Since that performance, Ryan Reynolds and Stray Kids’ leader Bang Chan developed a friendship. Ryan Reynolds often praises Stray Kids in interviews and even sent Bang Chan a gift and invited him to a movie premiere.
Stray Kids and Ryan Reynolds are also frequently supportive of each other on social media, often liking posts about the other on Twitter and Instagram.
Fans have even been hoping Stray Kids will be featured in the upcoming Deadpool movie and have some evidence to back up their suspicions.
Ryan Reynolds vibing to Stray Kids makes sense coz Stray Kids doesn't make music for ordinary people. They make music for superheroes or people that do extraordinary shit if you get me. Like when u listen to Maniac & Charmer do you not feel like lifting cars?

And some fans who saw Ryan Reynold’s story early realized that the actor even deleted his initial post to reupload it with Stray Kids’ song.
