Never Forever is a 2007 US/South Korean co-production written and directed by Gina Kim. The film was critically acclaimed when it was first screened at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival,[1][2] and won the Jury Prize at the Deauville American Film Festival.[3][4][5]

The Korean title 두번째 사랑 translates to "Second Love".

Plot[edit]

An upper class Caucasian woman living in New York (Vera Farmiga) is unable to conceive a child with her Korean-American husband (David McInnis), who is sterile. After her husband attempts suicide, she contacts a young illegal immigrant from Korea (Ha Jung-woo) to pay him to have sex with her, so that she might get pregnant and save her marriage.
