Han Hwak is mostly known by his sixth daughter, the Queen Insu. She married the son of Prince Suyang (son of King Sejong). Some years later, Suyang became King Seonjong, the ninth King of the Joseon Dynasty, and his son became Crown Prince Uigyeong. The honorary title Queen Insu was granted when one of the children of Insu and Uigyeong became the King Seongjong of Joseon.
