When the ship on which Sim Cheong got reached the Indangsu Sea, a strong wind suddenly began to blow and the waves rose.
The sailors stood Sim Cheong on the bow of the boast and played the gongs.
“Please keep the see route under way and let my father open his eyes.”
After the prayer, Sim Cheong covered her face with her skirt and jumped into the cold sea.
Sim Cheong sank deep into the sea.
“Where am I?”
When she opened her eyes, there is the Dragon King’s Palace. Sim Cheong followed the court lady to the Dragon King.
“Because of your devotion to your father, I will send you back to the human world.”
One day, a giant lotus blossom floated up the surface of the West Sea.
Everyone thought strange. Some fishermen pulled the lotus blossom into their boat and took it to their king.
When the king touched the lotus blossom, the petals of the flower began to open and a beautiful young lady was coming. It was Sim Cheong.
The king took Sim Cheong as the queen.
Meanwhile, after Sim Cheong left, Blind Sim lived with Baeng Deok mother who was in the neighborhood. Baeng Deok mother decided to live together, after the fortune of Blind Sim.
Her spending was so tight that Blind Sim became penniless again.
Sim Cheong stayed with the king’s special love. Wearing good clothes, eating good food and nothing was missing. But she was always filled with anxiety at the thought of her father.
“Queen, is there anything to worry about?”
After listening to her father’s story, the king decided to hold a feast for the blind at the palace.
“Honey, there is a party for the blind at the palace. Let’s go there and get a big meal together.”
Baeng Deok mother asked Blind Sim to set off on the road. But not along after, she took all the money from Blind Sim and ran away.
Blind Sim went to the palace alone.
It was the last day of the festival when he arrived at the palace, stuttering along the street with a cane.
Sim Cheong went to the feast for the blind every day and looked around, but could not find her father. On the last day of the party, she saw familiar clothes.
“Father, I am Cheong.”
“What, my daughter Cheong? Let me see my Cheong’s face.”
When Blind Sim looked at her daughter, he opened his eyes to the world.
Sim Cheong and Blind Sim cried tears of happiness.
Sim Cheong lived happily with her father at the palace.
