  2. Although it is not the first gay film produced in Korea, No Regret is by far the most successful one and it ignited public discourses on homosexuality in Korea. Screened in only nine theatres in South Korea, No Regret attracted over 40,000 audiences, well exceeding the industry expectation. This film marks the impressive directorial debut by Leesong Hee-il who is also openly gay. Leesong Hee-il provides insight into a gay subculture that most heterosexual directors would have a difficult time conveying. Film critic Adam Hartzel wrote: “one of the best aspects of this film is how we aren’t provided the obligatory caricatures of gay ‘types’ on prime-time sitcoms in the United States… Refusing to follow the path towards Queer liberation espoused by sitcoms, [No Regret] is freed to provide some refreshingly, rip-roaring hilarious moments.”
