Stray Kids member Bang Chan celebrated his birthday on Monday and got a special birthday message from “Deadpool” actor Ryan Reynolds.
The duo’s friendship formed after Reynolds complimented the K-pop act’s “Deadpool”-inspired performance on the reality competition show “Kingdom: Legendary War” last year.
Since then, Reynolds and Stray Kids have had numerous interactions with one another, ranging from exchanging autographed gifts to supporting each other’s projects like Reynolds’ movie “Free Guy” and Stray Kids’ comeback album, “Oddinary.”
Reynold’s took it a step further with a fun edit of his character from “Free Guy” seeing a holographic Bang Chan dancing to The Weeknd‘s hit song “Blinding Lights,” along with a “HAPPY BIRTHDAY BANG CHAN” message. The actor spread the clip across his personal social media accounts, including his Maximum Effort film and marketing company’s Twitter account.
The gesture from Reynolds was appreciated by Stray Kids’ fans, Stays, who are hoping for Stray Kids’ music to be included in the forthcoming third “Deadpool” film.
