He said, “A voice actor should be an actor having various characters inside, and careful to have a same acting style targeting on a certain genre” and highlighted to be aware of the necessary capacity for game dubbing and the differences with other genre. Besides, he added “As a voice actor, it is an important step to spend time analyzing yourself and figuring out your color of voice, acting style and own characteristics, etc.” and tried to give meaningful advice regarding making own brand as a voice actor.
