Professor Robert Kelly Speaks Out About Being Interrupted By His Children

The news is very serious and somewhat depressing at times. A recent video that aired on a live BBC Interview showed the news’ more humorous moments.


Robert Kelly, the expert in South Korean politics had an interesting interview on BBC recently. Professor Kelly was discussing Park Geun-hye the President of South Korea who was recently ousted from power. Although a serious topic, his two children couldn’t help but bring their energy into the same room that he was having the live interview. His toddler Marion came waltzing in the room which Professor Kelly has stated is usually locked during interviews.

When Professor Kelly was speaking to the Wall Street Journal regarding the incident he had this to say; “As soon as she opened the door I saw her image on my screen. She was in a hoppity-hoppity mood that day because of the school party.” In the video, Kelly can be seen trying to subtly push Marion away trying to stay focused and act as if nothing bad is happening. When eight-month-old James walked in to join in the fun, that’s when Kelly said; “Then I knew it was over.”

The cherry on top had to be when Kelly’s wife Jung-a-Kim came speeding in Tokyo drift style dragging them away and closing the door behind them. The video which is a viral sensation has been already viewed 84 million times on BBC’s Facebook page. The story itself has been reported all around the world. James Mernendez said this when the interview wrapped up, ‘There’s a first time for everything. I think you’ve got some children who need you!”

Even though Kelly was a little sheepish at the time he’s since seen the funnier side of things. Kelly stated that at first, he was rather surprised and then he became amused before finally feeling love and affection for his family. “It was terribly cute. I saw the video like everybody else and it’s really funny…” Kelly stated he’s not a fan of social media and even does his best to avoid it. He had this to say, “I’m not even going near YouTube or Reddit or whatever those other sites are…”
