The release date of Korean erotic thriller “The Taste of Money” has been set to next month, according to the pic’s promoter Synergy.

On Wednesday, Synergy announced in a press release that “The Taste of Money,” featuring a star-studded cast of Kim Kang-woo, Kim Hyo-jin and Yoon Yeo-jung, will make its way to local theaters on May 17.
