Han In Sang was a General Authority of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in the Second Quorum of the Seventy from June 1, 1991, to October 5, 1996. He was the first Korean General Authority. After his release, he served as president of the Seoul Korea Temple.

Han was born on December 10, 1939, in Seoul, Korea. As a teenager, he shouldered many family responsibilities because his father was in hiding from the government. He learned about the gospel while in high school when a friend invited him to go to church with him. He was baptized a year later at the age of seventeen. His six siblings and his mother eventually joined the Church as well. He baptized his mother while serving as the first Korean missionary to serve in Korea. He was ordained an elder by Gordon B. Hinckley.

Professionally, he served as regional manager for temporal affairs in the Church’s administrative office in Seoul. He previously managed the Seoul Distribution Center. He also served as translation supervisor for the Church in Korea, and he translated the Book of Mormon into the Korean language while serving his mission.

Han and his wife, Lee Kyn In, are the parents of five children.
