Storyline

Newly-hired gofer Young-Jak Joo becomes a key pawn in a powerful South Korean corporate-crime family obsessed with sex, money, and intrigue. The family bribes a government official to take the heat off its young heir. The Yoons are so rich, they have no qualms letting the young bag-man cull the cash he's to deliver, from a storeroom jammed with 6 foot high stacks of money. Mr. Joo seems too obsequious and obedient to worry about, but when the wife of the company CEO sees on her spy cameras, that her husband is having an affair with their maid, the infuriated matriarch orders Mr. Joo to have sex with her, then entrusts the befuddled Mr. Joo with monitoring the video screens.

Disappointing
2 March 2014 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Disappointing.

A sequel, of sorts, to The Housemaid though it is not at all necessary to have watched the Housemaid before seeing The Taste of Money.

Like The Housemaid, the movie has heaps of potential. Family intrigues, corporate corruption, general seediness. The introduction of a new character, Joo Young-Yak, allows for a fresh view on the evil family we met in The Housemaid. Also allows the movie to be watched in isolation.

With this setup, you think that the story should be quite interesting, and initially it is.

However after the good foundation, the movie proceeds to go nowhere. While the family intrigues continue, they all make sense. Things just feel contrived.

Ending does nothing to try to tie everything together and is quite pointless.

Performances are decent.
