Ryan Reynolds is a huge Stray Kids fan. The 44-year-old actor had a fanboy moment during an interview with the group's leader, Bang Chan, Tuesday.

Reynold's movie, "Free Guy," is set to premiere worldwide on Aug. 13. As part of its promotional activities in South Korea, Chan interviewed the actor who did not hesitate to express his admiration for the boyband.

"It is an honor and a privilege to talk to you and it's kind of crazy because I like…I think you guys are amazing. I think all the Stray Kids are amazing," Reynolds said.

"Oh my gosh! Thank you," Chan told Reynolds in response.

During the interview, Reynolds also shared that he had watched the "NOEASY" trailer "a whole bunch of times" and admitted to watching the group's "CHEESE" teaser clip.

"You guys do this amazing thing where you kind of blend music with the action genre. It’s something I don't see a lot of people do, and it's something I'm actually going to steal," he said further.

In May, Stray Kids had a "Deadpool"-inspired performance in an episode of "Kingdom: Legendary War," where the group also featured a mashup of their hit track "God's Menu" and Blackpink's "DDU-DU-DDU-DU."

A fan who saw the episode tweeted an edit of Felix's intro from the performance spliced with a scene from "Deadpool."

Later that day, Reynolds personally responded to the tweet, noting, "Oh hello @Stray_Kids."

According to Soompi, Bang Chan had repeatedly mentioned in the past that he's a fan of Reynolds.

In a broadcast in South Korean live video streaming service V Live on May 24, Chan said, "I did not expect 'the one,' the almighty one, the Ryan Reynolds to see our performance. That was actually crazy. You guys know that I really, really like Ryan Reynolds. Yes, I would like an autograph."

Reynolds reacted by posting a tweet addressed to the group's leader.

"First, I have your autograph right here, Bang Chan. Will send to you this week. Second, as a new Stray Kids fan, can I get an autograph?" Reynolds wrote.

In "Free Guy," Reynolds plays a bank teller who discovers he is actually a background character in a video game. Directed by Shawn Levy, the flick's cast members also include Jodie Comer, Taika Waititi, Joe Keery, Lil Rel Howery and Utkarsh Ambudkar.
