His older brother, Buyeo Abang, became the 17th kin, Asin of Baekje. Hunhae was sent to Japan as a political hostage but returned to Baekje during his brother's reign. His brother died in 405 and Hunhae served as regent for Asin's son (who was also in Japan as a political hostage) who was returning from Japan. The younger brother of Hunhae, Buyeo Seolye who wanted to become king himself had Hunhae killed but was himself killed by the returning Jeonji and the prime minister.[1]

Hunhae's descendants who stayed in Japan became founders of the Anko clan (雁高氏) as recorded in the Japanese genealogical compilation, Shinsen Shōjiroku.[2]
