MBC weekend series “A 100-Year Legacy” has secured its top place on a weekly TV chart for the fourth week in a row.

The family drama sat atop Nielson Korea’s chart after posting an average 28.1 percent viewership rating during the week of May 20 and 26.

The Eugene and Lee Jung-jin starrer increased its story’s tension by revealing the secret about male lead Lee Se-yoon’s [Lee] birth, leading to a rise of an average 0.9 percentage points from the previous week’s episodes.

Sitting on No. 2  once again was KBS’s weekend drama “You Are the Best!,” which nabbed an average rating of 26.1 percent for the same time period.

While KBS prime time news show “KBS 9 o’clock News” sat in third place with an average score of 18.0 percent, the same channel’s weekly series “A Tale of Two Sisters” took the following spot with a 17.4 percent average score.

Comedian Kim Byung-man’s reality variety show “The Laws of the Jungle” rounded off the top five with a rating of 16.1 percent.

Other TV programs in the top ten included MBC weekend series “Pots of Gold,” KBS morning soap “Samsaengi,” MBC period fantasy “Kang Chi, the Beginning,” MBC Sunday variety show “Where Are We Going, Dad?” and KBS comedy show “Gag concert.”

* Correction: The official name of MBC’s current weekend series is “A 100-Year Legacy,” not “One Hundred Year’s Legacy” as TenAsia has reported in the past.
