John Kuan (Chinese: 關中; pinyin: Guān Zhōng; born 9 June 1940), also known as Kuan Chung, is a Taiwanese politician who was president of the Examination Yuan of the Republic of China from 2008 to 2014.
Kuan's daughter, Wendy Kuan (關雲娣), died in May 2011 after she fell from the kitchen window of her 27th floor apartment in Shanghai. It was rumored that she committed suicide because her husband, Zero Lin (林哲樂), was having an affair. Kuan has avoided meeting Lin ever since his daughter's death, refusing to attend any family events where his son-in-law would be present.
