Either way, it looks to me like the influence was more conceptual. In other words, the techniques themselves look very un-similar, whereas it looks like the idea of the jumping spinning roundhouse kick is very much a Taekyon-inspired thing.
Another thing I noticed that was similar to TKD was the fact that the movements were mostly very soft and suddenly "exploded," and weren't just 100% hard all the time.
