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.

Independent (UK)
The director seems uncertain whether he is making a slow-burning character drama or a satirical gangster movie about modern-day Seoul's answer to the Borgias.

Mark Kermode
Observer (UK)
Sex, death, greed, corruption: they're all here in handsomely mounted and highly polished cases. Taste the money - smell the glove.

Irish Times
A veritable orgy of vulgar melodrama, The Taste of Money might pass as satire if the conclusions drawn were not so broad and unsurprising.
