Gen Choi: Half Facing

This first question I asked General Choi was about the photo vs text for movement 36 in the pattern Yul-Gok.

The photo in the encyclopedia clearly shows the exponent side facing, yet the X-stance is normally performed in a half facing position for the back-fist.

I don’t think Gen Choi quite understood what I was asking here, as he demonstrates how the technique could not possibly work if you are full facing your opponent – instead of what I was asking which is side facing. Anyway, in the end we arrived at half facing is correct and the photo is wrong.
