Lee Kwan-Woo (born 25 February 1978) is a Korean football player who plays as a midfielder and playmaker.

Nicknamed "Sirius" and dubbed "Kwanquelme" by his fans, Lee began his professional football career in the K-league by joining the community based club, Daejeon Citizen in 2000. During his stay in Daejeon, he established himself as a fan favorite with his accurate passes and long shots. In addition, his record of 22 goals and 18 assists made him an icon amongst the Purple Crew; however, on July 2006, he left Daejeon and joined its rival club, Suwon Samsung Bluewings. Before joining the Bluewings, he had suffered from a critical car accident and a knee injury. He had almost retired but came back strong for Suwon and even made a national squad

After a poor seasonal campaign in 2005, the Bluewings aimed to rebuild their squad during the transfer window, and brought in Lee Kwan-Woo along with others notably Baek Ji-Hoon for the 2006 season. This proved to be a vital move, as the Bluewings finished the season as runner-ups despite being one of the top favorites. At the start of the 2007 campaign, he was given the armband for the Bluewings;, but lost his captaincy to his teammate Song Chong-Gug at the start of the 2008 season. Nevertheless, his keen passing and ball distribution remain invaluable to the Bluewings.

He is member of 30-30 Club since August 25, 2007.
