Raised by a blind father, Simcheong grows up to be a kind-hearted and devoted daughter to her father. At the age of 15, her father slips and falls into a creek, leaving him in a critical condition. A passing Buddhist monk saves Simcheong’s father and tells him if he donates 300 bags of rice to the temple then within three years he will be cured. Simcheong’s father promises to donate the bags of rice, a promise he can not keep. Upon hearing this, Simcheong sells her body to the sea and then donates the bags of rice to the temple before jumping into the Indangsu. The Dragon King of the Sea is so moved by Simcheong’s selfless actions that he returns her to the real world.
