A Hundred Year Legacy (Hangul백년의 유산; RRBaengnyeon-ui Yusan) is a 2013 South Korean television series starring Eugene and Lee Jung-jin. Revolving around themes of food, love and family, the warm human drama is about a modest Seoul noodle house that's been operated by the same family for three generations. It aired on MBC from January 5 to June 23, 2013 on Saturdays and Sundays at 21:50 for 50 episodes.


The early working title was Third Generation Noodle House (Hangul: 삼대째 국수집; RRSamdaessae Guksujib).

It won Drama of the Year at the 2013 MBC Drama Awards.


Min Chae-won is the eldest granddaughter of a family living in an outskirts of Seoul who have been running a noodle factory for three generations. Married for three years to Chul-gyu, whose rich family owns the major corporation Golden Dragon Food, Chae-won has had a difficult life because her mother-in-law fiercely opposed the match and would not accept her.

When her husband cheats on her, she detaches herself from her in-laws and decides to divorce him. Her mother-in-law has her falsely committed to an mental institution as revenge for the divorce. She returns to the noodle factory and struggles to modernize and expand it. Chae-won later meets Lee Se-yoon, the son of a wealthy household who is infamous for his disparaging treatment of all those around him. They both nurse wounds from their past romantic relationships.
