Product Description

Set in Seoul's sleezy rent-boy scene, No Regret is a startling erotic thriller, exploring the complexities and pressures of gay life in South Korea's burgeoning queer community. Orphan Sumin is doing all he can to make ends meet. When he is abruptly fired his job at the local factory, he faces no other option but to accept work in the city's leading up market male brothel, X-Large. The line between sex and love, however, blurs when Jaemin, a man whose fate seems irrevocably tied to his, appears in his life once again, but this time as a high-rolling client. As lost souls become further and further entangled in a sexually-charged relationship, their vastly different worlds collide in a most tragic way.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good Film 8 Sep 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Loved this tragic tale. It was telling of a world that few of us ever see or even glimpse for ourselves. All of it well acted and portrayed in a sympathetic way showing the true sadness of it all for the characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gay love in South Korea. 29 Jun 2010
By Louis
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This shows a story of frustration and love. Su-min moves to the city (Seoul) to find work. He finds two jobs- working as a taxi driver and a factory worker. A male customer (Jae-min) falls for him on his taxi shift but Su-min ignores him. Su-min is later made redundant from his factory worker, but who comes in from the head office to inform the workers, Jae-min. After the two meet and remeber the situation in the taxi, Jae-min gives Su-min his job back, but Su-min refuses. Su-min then earns money as a rent boy. The educated Jae-min finds Su-min and he falls for him even further. Su-min shrugs off Jae-min's advances at first, but after Jae-min's many attempts to be with him, he starts to develop feelings and falls for him in return. Eventually the two end up in love and experiencing the ups and downs of life together. There are some happy and sad times as we watch their lives come together. There is no wonder why this is an award-winning film.

Format:DVD
I've been trying to think if I've ever seen a stupider and more annoying movie than this one. I'm sure I must have, but I can't remember any right now. I often disagree with other reviewers, but I can't remember another movie that got almost universally good reviews that I absolutely hated. I kept expecting it to get better, but it just kept getting worse.

Both leads, even the orphaned hustler - actually, everybody in this stupid movie - they're ALL selfish, arrogant, unattractive, manipulative people, expecting everybody else to bend under the pressure of their relentless, selfish demands - without EVER showing ANY sign of ANYTHING the least bit attractive to make such a surrender desirable.

If this were meant as a clinical study in extreme, unrelenting human dysfunctionality and co-dependence, I might have been able to stand it - just barely - but romance? PASSION? What movie did these people see? Not the one I saw. Not the mindless, petty, self-indulgent, tantrum-filled, grossly overwrought, hand-wringing, tear-jerking, IDIOTIC soap opera I just spent almost two hours with.

"Prepare to be captured and enthralled for every minute, beginning to end." Well... I was prepared, but I was not ever, not for one second, captured (unless being held hostage counts) or enthralled, or even mildly interested. And "Strong sexual content"? "Nudity"? WHAT nudity? I didn't see any, unless a shirtless man smoking a cigarette merits an adults-only classification now. What a profoundly disappointing and irritating afternoon this has been. This is the worst movie I've seen in ages, if not ever.

Format:DVD
Su-min is from an orphanage and moves to Seoul to find work. He combines a day job in a factory with moonlighting as a cab driver. Jae-min, a young and somewhat reluctant businessman, falls for him, barely noticed, from the back seat of his taxi shift. Su-min's applecart is upset by redundancy, and the blow is announced by none other than a newcomer to the factory, Jae-min. Su-min is reduced to working in a male brothel (one might query whether this was inevitable but there you go). Once again he encounters Jae-min, whose passion for Su-min is whetted. The film is about how the would-be relationship advances and retreats, and how it turns out.

I liked this film. It showed a darker side to Seoul and the desperate lives of those on the poverty line. The film handles the part obsession can play in the pursuit of a relationship.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant film 5 Sep 2010
By Liir
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have just watched this film and I thought it was brilliant. Never have I wanted two people in a love story to get it together so much. I didn't know what to expect when I started watching this, but I quickly became hooked and towards the end I was on the edge of my seat willing them to stop being silly beggars and realise how much they loved each other. Totally blown away by the whole thing.

.........but the poor man wouldn't accept the shy man's heart." [this parable-like utterance is the lead-in to a love scene you won't want to miss]

((Here is my approach to obtaining/viewing/reviewing Gay tales in film form. Simply, it's seeking the holy grail of that genre, or looking for the "Addictive Film"---that movie one returns to time and again). Selection/purchase is based mainly on finding new releases by favorite directors/screenwriters and/or your comments/reviews at major online film sales or review sites. Sometimes I feel correctly steered by you (the "Keepers" filling my DVD shelves), other times mislead, occasionally badly (the "Throwaways"----and I do toss 'em). Rarely, I come across the "Addictive," those watchable every couple of months or so (see below starred *** area for a list......and some "near-Addictive" as well). For some movies, I'll share a review with you, as follows. Thanks for sticking with me so far.))

Opposites in life, they meet, they fight, they fall tumultuously in love (well, not so easily as all that). One (Jae-Min), is the wealthy and well educated son of a big industrialist........the other (Su-Min---the lead we follow in this tale) is a just-in-from-the-country, young man---an orphan and wise from life's hard knocks (yeah, yeah, it's cliched.....but how do you avoid that in these sorts of films?). From the beginning, our unhappy, has-it-all-in-life second lead (who's engaged and on the verge of marriage) falls hard, and it's through his persistent pursuit that lead character, Su-Min, finally overcomes his reluctance involving the several differences between them and accepts the reality of their love. What follows is one of gay filmdom's better love scenes. As one might expect, all that comes along is not smooth sailing.
