Im Sang Soo‘s The Taste of Money (돈의 맛) did not become the success at Cannes that was expected, but it has been doing well in Korea since it opened on theaters mid-May. The score was composed by Kim Hong Jip and on June 12th the full soundtrack for the movie was released, including ending song “그 맛” released as a digital single a month earlier.

Providing additional voices for the number were MukimukiManmansu and Goonamguayeoridingstella‘s Cho Woong.
