I used a computer to translate the German text below (from preceding
comment), regarding passing being always allowed.

Original Text:
Im koreanischen Schach gibt es keinen Zugzwang. Sollte es für einen
Spieler taktisch ungünstig sein, irgendeinen Stein, insbesondere seinen
König, zu bewegen, dreht er ihn einfach um. Dies gilt als Zug, denn alle
Figuren sind ja beidseitig beschriftet. 

Translation:
In Korean chess there is no course obligation. If it should be tactically
unfavorable for a player, any stone [piece], in particular its king to
move it turns it simply [flips it over]. This is considered as course,
because all figures are reciprocally marked.

Should we play Korean Chess in a tournament, rated game, or even a fun
game - it will be good to know which of the 3 passing rules should be
implemented.
