Prof. Robert Kelly Whose Live BBC Interview Was Invaded By His Kids Finally Breaks The Silence

Last week's internet star Prof. Robert Kelly whose live BBC interview was invaded by his kids, now talks about his “minor mistake that turned my family into YouTube stars.”Apparently, the American academic was discussing the impeachment of South Korea’s president when his two kids barged into the room and certainly into his live session on Skype.

Let's recall the video first!

After the video went viral on the internet, where ONLY Prof. Kelly was supposed to be on the screen, now the whole family has been invited to not only share the screen but also their reaction over the video.

Kelly's wife, Jung-a Kim, said...

“We laughed a lot, but still we were worried a little bit more.”While Kelly said, “We were worried actually that the BBC would never call us again. That was our first response – mortification that we had completely blown our relationship with you.”

The Professor explained that his elder daughter, Marion, had celebrated her birthday at the school that day.

That is why she was in a 'hippity-hoppity mood' on the day of the interview.

Kelly shared that as soon as she had opened the door, he saw her image on the screen.

And in the finest showbiz tradition, he attempted to guide Marion towards some toys and hoping that the broadcaster might narrow the camera angle.

But when his eight-month-old son, James sailed through the door, Kelly thought 'it was over'.

The fact that Kim was assumed as a nanny by many made Kelly uncomfortable.

While Kim, on the other hand, was herself very relaxed and said, “I hope people just enjoy it and don’t argue over this thing,” she said. “I’m not the nanny – that’s the truth – so I hope they stop arguing.”

The response to the video prompted the couple to disconnect from the social media.
