The purpose of this study is to investigate the change on shamanic-epic trandition. The following are the detailed problems and the finding of the study. There are "Performance Papers" and "Copy Papers" in Shamanic songs and Shamanic songs are handed down through these papers. While Copy Papers are precise and include the entire contents, Performance Papers are concise because the needless parts are shortened from the effect of Gut-pan. Performance Papers also need many reasonable explanation. Although Performance Papers are more shortened than Copy Papers, Performance Papers have more parts which pray "a gentle and easy death" than Copy Papers. This change results from the change of Gut-pan`s circumstance. People feel tered of Gut-pan. So, Shamans omit the needless parts and then emphasize the purpose of Gut, "a gentle and easy death". Like this, Shamans accept the change of circumstance and control Shamanic songs in their own way.
