The object of this study is to investigate a short biography of a famous musician Shim Chŏng-sun 沈正順 (1873-1937) and his family on the basis of SP discs manufactured during the Japanese colonial period (1910-1945). In the main discoursr it is made it clear that like Han Sŏng-jun 韓成俊 (1874-1941), Yi Tong-baek 李東伯 (1865-1950), and Kim Ch'ang-ryong 金昌龍 (1872-1943), Shim Chŏng-sun was one of famous folk musicians from Ch'ungch'ŏng province 忠淸道. The study also points out that his daughter Shim Mae-hyang 沈梅香 (1907-1927) who made many records of p'ansori repertories and folk songs in the early 1920's, and that the kayagŭm sanjo master Shim Sang-gŏn 沈相健 (1894-1965) of the early 20th century is his nephew of Shim's family. According to SP discs between the 1910's and 1930's Shim Chŏng-sun recorded not only various p'ansori repertories and kayagŭm solo, but also played an important role as a drummer for the p'ansori performances by such famous p'ansori singers as Yi Tong-baek and Kim Ch'ang-ryong. In conclusion it is said that this paper may be able to make a contribution to the historical study of modern period particularly in the early 20th century.
