The twist: The orphan is a boy who hasn’t told anyone he’s gay. After the boy looses his factory job and leaves his chauffeur job, he ends up working as a prostitute in a karaoke bar.
Highly erotic – billed as the first true gay film from Korea – No Regret deals with class, morality, love, lust and deep psychological scars. One of the more interesting aspects of the film is that it blurs the lines between male/female sexuality; the Korean men are sometimes so pretty they appear feminine.
No Regret releases in select theaters July 25.
