In 1747, one of his portraits was brought into the palace and it seemed that King Yeongjo viewed it in person. The Office of Royal Portrait Reproduction was established to produce portraits of King Sukjong and Cho Kwan-bin took charge of its reproduction at the office at the time. Perhaps, this served as an opportunity for King Yeongjo to view his portrait and for Cho to write a eulogy. After seeing his portrait, King Yeongjo mentioned “Your image is clean and pure. As time slips by, you get old and take on much of your father.”
