Sumin is an orphan trying to balance work in a factory with study at an art college and an evening job. One night, a rich young businessman makes an advance on him during one of his driving jobs. They meet again the next day: it is during a round of redundancy cuts at the factory where Sumin refuses an attempt by a man (who is in fact the boss' son Jaemin) to save his job. Eventually, Sumin is seduced into working as a prostitute in an up-market boy-brothel as Jaemin's obsession with him grows, leaving Jaemin helpless in the face of his overwhelming desire. This is a film of bold sexuality, where unexpected passion, desire and misunderstandings wreak havoc of an operatic intensity. Written by

Su-min is a poor country boy raised in an orphanage who goes to the big
city and gets a job working in a factory in Seoul. He also does odd
jobs to make ends meet and one night while working as a driver meets a
man Jae-min who propositions him. Su-min soon discovers that the
Jae-min is the son of the plant owner and that he's being laid-off.
While the son attempts to save his job, Su-min rejects the offer and
Shortly thereafter he finds himself working in a boydello and the rich
man has tracked him down. Also working at the boydello is a jaded
Hustler named Jung-tae who's only working where he is so that he can
make a lot of cash to spend on his girlfriend. Later we meet another
young country orphan who comes to work at the boydello and wins the
affections of a local policeman.
With the story of how this life changes these three young men as a
backdrop we see the relationship between Su-min and Jae-min grow from a
stalker relationship to something more only to have Jae-min's parents
intercede with plans of their own.
The subtitling could be better and some of the plot developments seemed
to be somewhat abrupt, (at least to an occidental mind) but overall the
film is watchable and better than most Korean gay films that I've seen.
Some additional character development would have helped as well.
