Unfortunately, for whatever reason, these poomsae never made it past the experimental stages. They were never rolled out to the general public. They are DOA as far as I can tell.

Personally I think someone filmed them at a demonstration and jumped to conclusions. The WTF has a creative forms division for competition therefore there is no need to add these to the traditional divisions.

I think they were in the planning stages because there was discussion about it at the 2009 Kukkiwon Foreign Instructor's Course that I attended. Somewhere on Youtube there is video of someone else doing one of them as well. The Kukkiwon has had a lot of turmoil in the past 5+ years. (Several presidents have come and gone. Including one that resigned after 2 months stating that he couldn't make any headway with the Board of Directors). That alone could be a possible explanation as to why they never rolled them out.
