Empress Chung Story Detail
In the 18th century, Shim Chung is the good-natured daughter of old government employee Shim Hakku.Shim Hakku is a loyal and honest man who works for the king. One day, he refuses to join some sinister ministers who are conspiring against the sovereign, so they set fire to his house. He loses his sight, and all his family members die except his daughter Chung.Hakku also becomes very poor as a result of the conspiracies.Fourteen years later, Chung lives in the countrieside with her father Hakku. She is the favorite girl in the village. She loves her father so much that she is willing to do anything which will help him regain his sight.When a sea monster troubling the ocean makes the waters so rough that the fishermen can't fish, Chung's devotion to her father is tested. If she sacrifices herself to appease the gods and restore calm to the sea, the fishermen promise her father 300 bags of rice as an offering to Buddha, who will then restore his sight.After gathering up sufficient courage, Chung plunges from a ship into the icy waves, and floats through the depths to the ocean floor. It is here that her real adventures begin. She is aided by her faithful friends Danchu (a dog), Gai (a goose) and Teobong (a turtle).Ultimately, Chung's journey reunites her with her father, leads her to a prince (who makes her an empress), and rewards her for her selfless actions.
