What side of drywall do you cut?

About to cut drywall and was told to cut the smooth side - however, to me, both sides seem smooth. Do I cut the white side or paper side?

Use a sharp blade and cut the white side first, then snap the sheet, and cut the backside.
At least that's what I do.
Good Luck!
