Yu Quan (Chinese: 羽泉; pinyin: Yǔ Quán) is a soft rock duet from Mainland China. They were founded in June 1998 as a duo between Chen Yufan and Hu Haiquan. They are from Beijing and Shenyang, respectively. Both members were born in 1975. They were signed with Taiwanese music distributor Rock Records in 1999. Since then the duo has published a total of nine albums, with over seven million records sold. The duo is very well received in mainland China.
In 2013, the duo competed in the first season of Chinese reality TV show called I Am a Singer, and they won the competition. They tried to use their way to recall Chinese music among the young generation, and encourage Chinese young musicians to remember and rebuild Chinese music culture.
