Format: DVD
A poor boy falls in love with a rich one ... it's a story that has been told over and over in gay films, but not as well as it is in "No Regret" (Huhwihaji anha) (South Korea 2006), a landmark Asian film now available (subtitled) on DVD for American audiences.

Lee Su-min is a poor 18 year old from a country orphanage, who stays with a friend in Seoul and tries to make a living, working at both a factory and as a driver for a service. When a rich slightly older man makes a pass at him on the job, Lee Su-min overreacts and quits that job, and soon loses his factory job as well. He goes to work for a "host bar" (brothel), where the rich older man finds him again, but is again told that he is not interested, but he persists. Eventually, he becomes secure enough to realize that his suitor doesn't have all of the power, and genuinely falls in love with the man. But the man's parents have already arranged a marriage for him, and that leaves Lee Su-min out in the cold.

This is very different than most Asian gay films I have seen, being extremely emotional and more than a bit dark and violent. But the director did wonders with his tiny budget, getting commendable performances from a cast of fully-developed characters, and pacing the film for maximum effect. Rated R for rear nudity and simulated sex. Adapted for US distribution by a subsidiary of Here!TV, so likely to be on their OnDemand schedule at some point. DVD is in Korean with English subtitles, no extras other than a trailer and photo gallery. Definitely worth a look, I give this one a full five stars out of five.

.........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 of them (Jae-Min) is the wealthy and well educated son of a big industrialist........the other (Su-Min) is the lead we follow in this tale. He's a just-in-from-the-country, young man (and an orphan) who is 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.

Format: DVD
NO REGRET (HUHWIHAJI ANHA) is an impressive film from Korea, especially in that it is the first venture for writer/director Hee-il Leesong who gives evidence of not only a his ability to create a film that examines life in Korea in a verismo style, but also knows how to cast and direct a crew of actors in a polished manner. He is most assuredly a new artist to watch.

NO REGRET takes many chances with the story of Korean orphans growing to the age of self-sufficiency without the guidance of parents, fending out a life with the sole support of their fellow orphans. The boys in this story come from the country with little exposure to the city life of Seoul and the tough choices that must be made to survive. The other side of the story reflects the wealthy young men who come from homes burdened with high expectations and preordained 'lives' of inheriting the family business, marrying the right girl, continuing the level of 'sophistication' to which they were born. NO REGRET places a member of each of these disparate groups together and the impact of opposite backgrounds is the thread that weaves so well through this love story.

Lee Su-min (the remarkably gifted newcomer Young-hoon Lee) is the orphan who works at menial jobs until he finds a source of good money as a rent boy in a company called XLarge. Su-min adapts well as he is apparently comfortable with his sexuality: his fellow ex-orphans who work at XLarge present the gamut of types that find prostitution monetarily if not emotionally rewarding. At a chance encounter Su-Min meets Song Jae-min (Nam-gil Kim) and while the attraction is one sided at first, Jae-min is bound by family expectations to marry and take over the family business and has not come to grips with his sexuality.
