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.[1]

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. They were in the show Lets Sing Kids.

They are currently mentors in the song writing show Sing My Song. (2014-2015) During fall 2016, they were the judges for a music show Sound of My Dream. The show ran from November 2016 to January 2017. Before the ending of the show, Yu Quan held their seventh consecutive Christmas concert Tree New Bee (树新峰 in Chinese).
