    You very honorably captured the lack of dishonoring your ancestors. You captured this role with great honor.

    Ah yes, Asia. That famously homogeneous part of the world that shares a single language and culture. How I long to eat moon cakes and Saag Paneer as I watch the Sakura blossoms fall in Hanoi.

    I went to Japan and this is EXACTLY how everyone talked. Men, women, children, and all in english as well. It was very surprising.

    I love how you don't have a single expression on your face, it really eccentuates the absolute passive-agressiveness and i live for it lmao

    Casting Director: "Okay can you give us an Asian accent?"

    I imagine as a Korean-American the fact that "Asian accent" is usually code for "Japanese accent" adds an extra layer of salt to everything.

    I love that Sungwon, a Korean-American, added the Japanese "good morning" for that extra salty emphasis on the stereotypical Chinese "honor" speech

    wow, Sungwon's skills are incredible. he really did sound like every single person from Asia, a continent with only one type of person throughout its dozens of nations and hundreds of regions, even though he clearly isn't of Asian descent since he doesn't sound

    Yes, that’s absolutely true. We Asians have that one single progenitor. That most honorable Samurai from Japan.

    Whoa… it really sounds like he’s speaking in Asian! Sungwon sure is an incredible voice actor!

    I see the acting/voice acting industry is still committed to their whole "could you be a bit more... *urban*?" way of casting minorities.

    Lifehack: Next time they ask for “Asian “, hit them with some Tuvan throat singing; they’ll give you the role on account of them thinking you are a warlock or something.

    This is basically true. However for fun. When they ask for an asian accent. I would just use your normal voice, then when they try to say that its wrong be all "well I am Asian and this is what I sound like." Then try to make them squirm by hinting that they're racist and see how what they say.

    The real question is: when this bit inevitably gets you a gig, how mad are you going to be?

    It’s especially funny when you put all of the accents in Asia side by side. I imagine a studio implicitly wanting a Japanese accent and then the VA suddenly starts screaming at them in a Filipino accent

    The amount of spite here is actually kind of entertaining.

    This feels like it was recorded 5 minutes after he got out of a bad audition.
