Which form is Ji Pangyi?

Most of the forms from World Tang Soo Do are the traditional, found all over. The names are also fairly common, and even if you didn't recognize the name, watching the form, you would immediately realize which form was being performed. (you know, Wang Shu = Empi, Shi Shan = Hangetsu, etc). This one even sounds different, more Korean. I don't know it, at least without seeing it. I assume that under another name it would be something we might know, given our respective travels.

I'll email around and see if one of the old-time TSD guys can describe it to me.

Would it be a cane form?
