Career

Chun has produced music on a multiple Lonely Island projects including Saturday Night Live, 67th Annual Emmy Awards, and the Michael Bolton Sexy Valentine's Day Special.

Based on his previous knowledge of the Yakuza video game series franchise, Chun was surprised and pleased to be selected to voice Takayuki Yagami in the English-language version of the 2018 spinoff Judgment. Yagami's voice was meant to make him sound like a "bona fide badass" regardless of language, something the localization team believed they succeeded at. Chun found his work on the game gratifying, saying, "it really did require me to let go of the tricks that you use to push a performance through, and I really did need to fall back on authenticity and genuine groundedness". Chun found staying faithful to the spirit of the Japanese version challenging but enjoyed portraying Yagami's blend of seriousness and comedy. He said having to scream in certain parts of the game was difficult. Chun was surprised by the depth of Yagami's character arc, considering his work on the game an unforgettable experience. He found the character easy to connect with because of his realistic characterization.

Greg Chun's performance as Yagami was praised by The Hollywood Reporter and Game Informer EGM Now agreed, believing Chun made a more striking performance than Takuya Kimura, who the writer did not find suitable for the character.  RPGamer praised both Kimura and Chun's performances as Yagami.

Personal Life
