He actually has a great relationship with many K-Pop idols, such as HyunA, but what some might know is that he is technically a K-Pop idol himself. In fact, he is an honorary member of one of the biggest groups in the world, EXO.
In 2019, Reynolds met EXO at an event in Seoul for his Netflix film 6 Underground. From there, we got the beginning of lots of interactions between him and the group.

Chanyeol, who is a big fan of Reynold’s portrayal as the Marvel anti-hero Deadpool, shared a selfie with him with the caption, “Successful fan.” The two had a wholesome interaction in which Reynolds reposted the photo, letting everyone know that he was now “in the band,” which Chanyeol didn’t exactly deny…
Reynolds then confirmed his status as an EXO member. He made the announcement and made updates on all of his social media accounts.
Since then, he has posted a couple more updates related to his status as an EXO member.
Even after a few years, though Reynolds has not been promoting with EXO, he remained supportive of the other members. He has even been liking posts related to EXO’s latest comeback.
We even got an update from the 10th member of EXO, Ryan Reynolds 😂
