Simchung-Ga is the most artistic and popular Pansori.It is the longest one and takes four to five hours to perform in full.In this story of blind father and his daughter, filial piety is the theme.The saddest part of the story where Shimchung, the heroin, in efforts to help her father, gets sold as a sacrificial offering. The only prop the singer uses is a "hap-jook-sun", a hand fan. The percussionist is called "koh-soo".
