Is it dependent on mysql client??. I am experiencing different behavior with different clients such as php, java.

Well I am facing below problem:

I am using mysql 5.7, with all default server settings/ charset as latin1, but the tables created have charset as utf8

I have php application which uses system charset which is latin1 and all insertion/ fetching is working perfectly fine.
Recently around a week back, we have moved few of the code base to java micro-service where encoding set is utf8.
Now the problem is that for the same table, I have data in both utf8 and latin1 and whenever I fetch the data with opposite charset I get junked data.

Please suggest me how can I update the data to 1 charset without any downtime. I have around 2T of data.

Also, what is the recommended parameters/settings/charset I should use to avoid such discrepancy in future.
