Facing away K

So the patch notes said that it can no longer ring out and that opening was extended, but it doesn't say anything about the fact that it now turns you around automatically. It doesn't even look natural. He just snaps to position after the kick. Do we know if this was intended or not. I really hope it is a glitch and if not do we have any new combos since it now stops them dead?
