1999 The Age of Apocalypse, where violence was rampant. In those days nothing was easy. A story about the love and friendship of girls, which was hotter than any other summer.
No Heaven, But Love is a new film blending the teen and queer genre from HAN Jay, director of Take Me Home (2020), a female queer melodrama, shown at the 21st JEONJU IFF. Set in 1999, when a prediction of the end of the world was clearly expressed, communication was done through pagers and payphones, and the radio was an important part of life, this film follows the fateful love between a high school girl, Ju-young and a juvenile training school student, Ye-ji. Combining the story of two girls choosing love over heaven, even at the end of the world, with events taking place within the Taekwondo club at Jooyoung’s high school, the film becomes a heart-breaking yet fresh teen drama. No Heaven, But Love is a mix of retro taste at the end of the 20th century and the sensibilities of the latest web series. It is also an attempt to extend the limitations of queer films. Park Sooyeon and Lee Yumi play the energetic girls, Ju-young and Ye-ji, and their charm shines. (MOON Seok)
