Today on the Tekken VC section lets take a look at Jin's friendly rival... HWORANG! Let us begin...

Greg Dale- While Greg's voice for the role was perhaps a bit too nasal but toher than that Greg's performance was surprisingly good as it does have a youthful brash but good natured feel to it that suited the role well.

Chris Rickabaugh- His voice is a little bit more natural for the role as his performance does suit Hwoarang's eager to fight nature rather well. (Though is it just me or is this game making hwoarang a little bit dumber?) But still Chris' work as Hworang is a good example of the voice work in the game nevertheless.

Overall both of these guys were very good for the role I will go with Chris a bit more but Greg was actually not too bad either.

Greg Dale kinda sounds like Robert Buchholz here. I'll go with Chris Rickabaugh on this one.

I prefer Chris Rickaburgh. He fits Hwoarang's willing to fight character better.

Though Greg Dale is pretty good. He fits T4 Hwoarang as he comes off being less feisty and a little more mature.

Please tell me I'm not the only one who thinks Greg Dale sounds like Renji Abarai...

On another note, both guys DID end up performing the role well, but I won't vote for anyone here. I'm just so used to hearing Hwoarang speaking his native tongue, is all.

@CelestialOuroboros Nope. You're not the only person who thinks that.

Chris Rickabaugh is better. But personally, I think Quinton Flynn would have been a better choice.

They're both good voices, so this one's a tie.

Chris is much more age-appropriate and feisty-sounding.
