Who is ProZD?
SungWon Cho is a popular YouTuber with millions of followers, focusing on comedy skits where he voices several characters himself. Most of the time, his videos are anime and Japanese games focused.
ProZD is also a professional voice actor. In terms of game roles, he recently voiced Mitsuo Yasumura in Yakuza: Like a Dragon, and Misedor in Disgaea 6.

ProZD – Voice role in Genshin Impact
In Genshin Impact, SunWon Cho voices Krosl, a merchant from Snezhnaya who appears in the new 1.5 quest needed to unlock the Housing and Serenitea Pot. Seeing how Genshin Impact is intricately written, it’s very likely we will be hearing Krosl again in future quests.
Interestingly, ProZD tweeted back in October 2020 that several Genshin Impact players kept asking him if he voiced a character in-game. He didn’t, until now.
It’s important to note that back then, miHoYo had yet to reveal most of the English Genshin Impact voice cast. All the seiyuu (Japanese voice actresses and actors) were revealed from the start. Seeing Japanese voices are primordial for marketing in a Japanese stylized game like Genshin Impact. But the full English cast was only revealed weeks after the game’s launch.
Now, whenever a new character is introduced, we get both their seiyuu and English voice talent name revealed at the same time.
Personally speaking, seeing English isn’t even my first language, I haven’t listened to an English anime dub in decades. With that said, I definitely enjoy ProZD’s work. And his videos can be quite hilarious. This is my personal favorite:
