MBC weekend series “A 100-Year Legacy” retook its top position from KBS weekend drama “You Are the Best!” after spending one week at No. 2.

The chart-topping family drama, starring Eugene and Lee Jung-jin, reclaimed the No. 1 spot with an average 28.4 percent viewership rating during the week of June 10 to 16, AGB Nielson Korea showed on Monday.

The pitiful relationship between Chae-won [Euguene] and Se-yoon [Lee], whose wedding plans were destroyed due to the ugly past of Se-yoon’s mom, is ticking down to the finale as the 50-part series set to air its last two episodes this coming weekend.

“You Are the Best!,” starring two talented actors IU and Cho Jung-seok, consequently slid down to the runner-up position after pulling in an average 25.6 percent rating last weekend.

Sitting on No. 3 was KBS’s live broadcasting of the final preliminary round for the 2014 Brazil World Cup, which Korea’s national soccer team beat Uzbekistan’s by a score of one to zero last Tuesday, attracting 21.4 percent of total viewers.

While MBC period fantasy “Kang Chi, the Beginning” jumped one spot from last week to number four with an average score of 18.7 percent, KBS daily drama “A Tale of Two Sisters” took two steps down and rounded off the top five with an average mark of 18.5 percent.

Other programs well-loved by viewers last week were KBS morning soap “TV Novel: Samsaengi,” “KBS 9 o’clock News,” MBC weekend drama “Pots of Gold,” KBS comedy show “Gag Concert” and SBS fantasy thriller “I Can Hear Your Voice.”

Meanwhile, TNmS [Total National Multimedia Statistics] showed the top three programs in the same order yet with slightly lower figures compared to those of TNmS during the second week of June.

While “A 100-Year” stood at the top with 26.0 percent, “You Are the Best!” and “Korea vs. Uzbekistan” followed next with 23.4 and 19.9 percent average ratings, respectively.
