Su-min is an orphan who, having turned 18, is required to leave his orphanage. Unable to pay for university, he heads for Seoul where he works various jobs to pay for computer classes. One of those jobs is driving drunks home from bars. After losing his factory job, Su-min ends up taking a job at a gay host bar.

Initially the boss of this host bar is reluctant to take him on, as he knows from experience that openly gay hosts will often leave when they become romantically involved with one of their clients. Having given up on love, Su-min believes that this won't happen to him, until one day a man from his past enters the host bar. That man, Jae-min, is a former driving client, who has fallen in love with Su-min.

Su-min refuses his advances, and accepts him as a client only once, and threatens to kill him if he hires him again. Jae-min is undeterred, and after several weeks go by, Su-min gives in. They are very happy in their relationship until Jae-min's mother discovers them together. She orders Jae-min to marry the woman he's been dating halfheartedly.

Su-min is angry and with another man from the host bar, they kidnap Jae-min one night and take him to a shallow grave in the forest. Su-min watches passively as his colleague throws dirt on Jae-min, but eventually he strikes, takes Jae-min out of the grave and back to the car.

Both of them get together but met an accident when they are getting out from the forest. But they were lucky when the police came and rescue them.

L² Comment:
Personally, i think this is a great gay film. Nothing too much of exaggerating and emotional. Just show the love among this two boys. Especially the feeling that hurt Su-Min when he has to reject Jae-Min's love even though he knw himself that he cannot resists Jae-Min.

This movie is one of my favorite when i was a kid, i repeat it for almost more than 50 times. I always have a good laugh when i see Sandra Ng. Regina Kent is my favorite, she's gentle and pretty. But today while i scan through wikipedia for her information, i noticed that she has passed away in her age of 31 due to brain tumor cancer. What a sad thing~ RIP Regina

Basically, this is a very simple story. Kinda easy to understand. But there's some part which is kinda boring and you might fall asleep if you don't have a coffee with you :) Hugh's acting is so so, nothing much different from his usual perfomance. While this kid, Nicholas really gave a surprise to me. I mean, his acting is not really a superb like Halley or Dakota, but not a bad one too...
