Ethan Juan is a Taiwanese actor, singer, model, and writer. He was born into a military family in a military dependents' village in Taichung, Taiwan. He attended various schools during his early years, including private and public elementary schools, as well as several junior high schools in Taichung, Taiwan.

He was expelled from Taichung First Senior High School for fighting, then expelled again from New Taipei Municipal Sanmin Senior High School for the same reason, and later dropped out of Yining Senior High School in Taichung due to his addiction to online games. After being expelled from the day school of Taichung Private Xinmin Senior High School for disciplinary issues related to fighting, he transferred to the night school.

He later enrolled in both the China University of Technology and Shing Wu University but did not complete his studies at either institution.

He once aspired to become a pilot and had even passed the exams. However, in 2002, while accompanying a friend to a casting call in Taipei, he was unexpectedly scouted by a modeling agency and made his debut starring in Penny Tai's music video "Loved." He subsequently signed with the Catwalk Modeling Agency, focusing mainly on runway shows and advertisement shoots.

In 2004, Ethan Juan made his debut in the idol drama "Dancing Michael". That same year, he and Zheng Yuan Chang jointly opened a nightclub called "SPOT" in Taichung, but it closed down in 2006.

On March 5, 2013, Ethan Juan announced the establishment of "Bright Entertainment" with directors Niu Cheng Ze and Li Lie, marking his official venture into the entertainment industry as a producer.

After entering the entertainment industry, Ruan Jing Tian had romantic relationships with several female stars. In 2005, he dated Liu Pin Yan, who was 17 at the time, during their collaboration on "Green Forest, My Home." This relationship led to both of them being frozen out by their management company, with a reduction in their work opportunities.

On January 31, 2012, Ethan Juan began his military service, but due to physical reasons, he was assigned to alternative military service (Substitute Service Training Class, 104th session). He officially completed his service and was discharged on January 11, 2013.
