Dear María Mercedes,
according to Marshall R. Pihl, the earliest manuscript of Shimch'ŏng-
ga would be by Shin Chae-hyo--promoter and one of the first scholars
of p'ansori--, dating from the 1870s. (This seems to be a literary re-
working of the well-known p'ansori-song rather than a transcript.)
The first woodblock editions of performance transcripts appeared in
the early 20th century. See Pihl's study The Korean Singer of Tales
(Harvard UP 1994) for more information on this matter (especially pp.
113-121) and a translation of the ~1916 Wanp'an-woodblock edition.
Best regards, Jan

I'm writing from Argentina (please excuse my grammar mistakes, my
still needs improvement), with a question to which I haven't been
find an answer yet.
Does anybody know around what time the traditional tale of Sim Cheong
( 심청 )
was written? Or in which century the first written records of it became
known? I've only found the dates of famous performances of it as
from 1788 onwards.
Thank you very much for your time.
María Mercedes Gallo.
