👤 Internet Legend SungWon Cho Describes Fan Boundaries


SungWon Cho, aka ProZD, is an iconic voice actor known online for short-form skits about games, anime, internet culture, and fandom. Known for an infectious blend of satire, blunt honesty, and nerdiness, Cho cultivated a dedicated audience for around eight years and monetized primarily off of sponsorships and ad revenue.

Cho has a reputation for speaking his mind about the hypocrisies and pitfalls of the internet landscape—like YouTube’s recent profanity demonetization move—giving voice to what many creators might be thinking but are too afraid to say. 

In an interview with Passionfruit this week, Cho described this knack for honesty and his desire to avoid being a “phony” to his loyal fanbase. He also discussed his approach to parasociality and healthy boundaries with fans.
