No Regret Film Poster


Gay love between a South Korean factory worker and the owner's son struggles to surpass the class divide. Leaving his rural orphanage behind, Su-min Lee (Young-hoon Lee) heads for the city and a job in a Seoul factory. With pay in the factory poor, Lee decides to take on another job at nights, working as a driver for hire. One night he's propositioned by Jae-min Song (Nam-gil Kim), but refuses the drunken man's overtures, not realising that he is in fact the son of the factory owner. Shortly afterwards, when redundancies are announced at the factory and Lee's name appears on the list, Song offers to help, but is again refused. Now surviving as a lap-dancer at a local strip club, Lee's anger rises when Song yet again makes an appearance, refusing to take no for an answer. As their relationship grows in the following weeks, the pressures of forbidden love and the differences in their social class threaten to spiral out of control, leaving chaos in their wake.
