Romantic drama that interweaves the bliss of love with the harsh politics of class distinction. Sumin, an orphan from the countryside, goes to Seoul to study art design. Supporting himself with odd jobs, he comes to the attention of Jaemin, a man from a rich and conservative background. But, Sumin loses his factory job and begins to prostitute himself in order to survive. Despite the vast differences in their socio-economic status, Jaemin is determined to win Sumin's heart.

Even a melodrama can be made credible in the hands of a skilled director, as Leesong Hee-Il reminds us in No Regret.
As a love story, it could scarcely be more tempestuous and as an exposé of class differences and sexual hypocrisy it could hardly be more scathing -- or, more important, entertaining.
Part soap opera, part soft-core gay sex movie, No Regret is the debut feature by Leesong Hee-il, who is said to be South Korea's first openly gay filmmaker.
[Director] Leesong fails to extrapolate the insights of the brothel milieu into his larger agenda: a melodramatic love-hate affair between Sumin and Jaemin so schematic it's unintelligible.
Sexy, gritty and inspired, No Regret captures a love story so true and aching and unforgettable, it crosses gender lines completely.
Invites comparisons with "Brokeback Mountain", but this $100,000 Korean film is far better in every respect. Not to be missed.
