Teaser and stills from Hundred Year Inheritance
by | December 26, 2012 | 33 Comments

These stills from MBC’s upcoming weekend drama Hundred Year Inheritance look a bit serious for a show that’s supposed to be light and cheery, but there’s no denying Eugene and Lee Jung-jin make a beautiful couple.

The drama recently filmed its title sequence in Namhae-gun, pictured here. We get a glimpse of the scene in the drama’s teaser video below, which captures a little more of the fun spirit (though the tone still seems more contemplative than comical):

Even so, I’m still expecting a fair share of comedy, given the meet-cute between the leads. Eugene, dressed in a hospital gown, pleads with the stranger (Lee Jung-jin) to help her, because she’s totally sane. Hm, is she being held in an asylum against her will, then? He looks confused, but that’s nothing compared to the surprise of having her look up at him from her hospital bed, calling him “Yobo” (for husband). Hee. Is he her escape plan?

That plotline wasn’t mentioned in earlier descriptions, which just told us that this drama centers around a family running a noodle factory in which Eugene plays a divorced woman returning to the family business. I’m thinking they should REALLY play up this angle more. How could you have that card in your pocket and not bust it out?

Hundred Year Inheritance premieres on January 5.

      The tone of the teaser does make me scrunch my nose, but if it plays up the comedy then I’m all in. I love both Eugene and Lee Jung-jin.

    I’m really looking forward to this one. I really like Eugene and I love Lee Jung-jin since Love Story in Harvard. Please let this be cute and funny. And I like the idea of him helping her escape from being locked up. But I hope it doesn’t go too far from the comical. I think we really really need a light funny drama. I have hopes that this and Flower Boy Next Door will fit that bill.

    Lee Jung-jin is back (in drama world) and in combination with Soo Ae πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Well… different dramas…days, air time etc. but I love that drama-paring so… me happy camper πŸ™‚

    The cast looks amazing! I need my weekend dose of drama after May Queen.

  5. Ivoire

    Thank You! The tone does look serious in the teaser (kind of melo a little bit), however we could be surprised at how funny and light and cheerful the drama ends up being. Let’s hope. I do like Eugene and LJJ as well.

    I don’t know if I’m going to watch this but one thing I noticed from the premise is that it’s pretty.

    HA. Ikr? What a vague thing to say but it is, the surroundings, the actors, the lighting … everything just screams pretty ^^

    Whoch ofc is a good thing.

    I’m hoping this will be uplifting and something fresh.

    I have to be superficial for a moment and comment I really dislike this hairstyle on Lee Jun-jin, it seems to be several k-men are all going to the same drunken barber. Lee Min-ho and Lee Sun-gyun had a version of this hairstyle also.

      Drunken Barber. Now there’s a Kdrama I would at least try to watch the first episode of.

      • 7.1.1 Mar


        Sung Dong-il as the Drunken Barber

        Ahn Suk Hawan-Drunken Barbers business partner and beleaguered best friend

        -Lee Il-hwa and Im Ye Jin -partners in the old school beauty shop down the street and long time crushes of the barbers.

        -various old codgers and battleaxes that come in and out of the shops.

        -Children/nieces/nephews’/friends of family/other shop owners on the street, that either live/work nearby or come in to visit and are all dancing around feelings for each other:
        –Oh I-na, Im Joo-eun, Li, Ji-ah, Jung Soo-young.
        –an idol of course, someone that just got out of the military, an adorable guy like Ryu Duk Hwan, and a hot mature actor like Kim Sang-joong.

        -a few teen and children neighbors.

        the barbers and beauticians are the neighborhood shrinks and philosophers and busybodies.

        –Occasional guest couple romantic conflict or dilemma that the barbers and beauticians ‘solve.’

      “… it seems to be several k-men are all going to the same drunken barber. …”

      HA!! Definitely! I don’t know what’s going on.

      Mr. Barber, please put the scissors down carefully and step away from the chair ….. and the soju.

      drunken barber.heheheheheoohohohohohehhe

      just last week I saw an old kung fu movie..Drunken Master
      when I read your entry I just visuallized a drunk martial artist trying to give a hair cut and if some one was crazy enough to sit in the chair, the hair would propably look just like that. enough, too funny.

    “These stills from MBC’s upcoming weekend drama Hundred Year Inheritance look a bit serious for a show that’s supposed to be light and cheery”

    If I didn’t read this, I definitely would think that these are stills from an upcoming melo..

  10. 10 biankoy

    I think it will be fun and cheery!! I mean, she’s in an asylum when she’s not supposed to be in it! and there’s going to be pretend marriage! How can it not be funny? I’m hoping for it to be fun and cheery!

    • 10.1 Mystisith

      Hum… I don’t want to give you a cold shower but the editorial line of MBC for its weekend dramas is generally a lot of makjang with a bit of funny. At least that was the case for the last ones: Feast of the Gods and May Queen.

      • 10.1.1 Gaeina Lee

        But, but… Mystisith, Dr. Jin gave us lots of laughter, wasn’t it? ^^

          @ Gaeina Lee
          please don’t even say the name. DR. JIN. the universe might think that we are asking for another show exactly like it .ouch, ouch, ouch, bite your tongue. going forward let us call this drama “HELL” and never call it by name.

  11. 11 rainbow

    the stills look serious, but I’m gonna give it a try as i like the leads πŸ™‚

  12. 12 ck1Oz

    It looks like a serious movie, not even a drama.
    But still, just for the 2 of them have to watch it πŸ™‚

  13. 13 Kstylick

    This would be another heartfelt drama. I’m glad Eugene is back. I love her even more when she got married.

  14. 14 Gaeina Lee

    ..Lee Jung Jin!! Been awhile.. Time to grace the small screen!

  15. 15 girlatsea

    Reminds me of the Feast of the Gods teasers and how confused I was.

    Still watching for Lee Jung-Jin though, I’ve missed him!

  16. 16 pop09

    i will definitely watch this drama, i’ve been waiting for eugene in a new drama.excited much:)

  17. 17 Taber

    I really don’t care for Eugene she was never an actress I got caught up in, I always felt her acting was boring she always come across as a married actress. Now I do love me some Jung Jin ever since 9 end 2 out and damm he was hot in Fugitive B but I not that girl of 7 years ago when I watch drama just to be watching. I spend my time more wisely and stop when if the drama not good and not even giving drama a chance if I don’t feel that the story-line is something I can relate too, therefore I past.

  18. 18 Carinne

    If it’s mostly funny then I’m in or else… pass for wkend dramas. Aren’t wkend dramas pinned as melo dramas galore?

  19. 19 sesr

    LOL at his hair

    is he meant to be 14 or gay?

  20. 20 Windsun33

    I have only watched two episodes so far, and have mixed feelings about it. On the down side, looks like it will have a lot of makjang to the max, on the up side it looks ike this drama will have the MOST EVIL mother in law ever.

    Will watch it a few more episodes, but so far will only give it barely 3 stars out of 5.

    • 20.1 plywood

      This show has the MOST evil mother in law I have ever seen. I want to kill her so much. The things she did I am so stupefied by it that I can’t even cuss her out.

  21. 21 Mi2

    I agree! The mother-in-law is so bad. Eugene’s acting is good. I don’t agree with the comment that Eugene’s acting is not good. All her past and present drama is great.

  22. 22 K-addict

    Have been following this drama since its airing. Love both Eugene and Lee Jung-Jin. Am so glad to see that the story will now finally focus more on the main couple (ep 14 right now). And soooooo happy that they finally just ed LJJ’s hair to one that suits him. (yes, i know I am superficial ;>)
