The professor gave an interview to the BBC from home. And then the children came
A television interview on a political topic, which is interrupted by a cute girl, a baby on a walker and a “speedy” mother, made many people smile and became the most viral video on the Internet in a week.
It is likely that Robert Kelly, a professor at Pusan National University, did not represent his appearance on the BBC World channel.
Since then, the video has been viewed 86 million times on Facebook.
This interview was written not only by the British media, but also by the US - ABC, Sky News, CNN, and others.
Kelly, 44, earned a bachelor's degree in political science from the University of Miami and defended his doctoral thesis in Ohio. His father is a historian, and his mother is to teach English in school.
For four years he lived in Europe, and later, in 2008, he moved to Korea, where he worked as a professor of political science at Busan National University. In addition to his native language, Kelly studied German, French, Russian, Latin, Korean, and Classical Greek.Photo: Facebook
The professor says that for all the time he managed to visit 40 countries. Including North Korea.
His wife Jung-a-Kim - takes the children to the video - in the past, a yoga teacher who now has been raising two children: Marion, four years old, and James, nine months.
Funny shots first appeared on Twitter on BBC producer Julia Macfarlane, who deleted him after 20 minutes.
She wrote:"When the children interrupt you in the middle of the interview ... A wonderful moment, masterfully processed by our guest this morning in South Korea".
A representative of the BBC told MailOnline: "We are very grateful to Professor Kelly for his professionalism. This suggests that the live broadcast is not always a child's game. ”
South Korea’s highly respected policy expert, Professor Kelly has written articles for Foreign Affairs, The European Journal Of International Relations and The Economist.
This is how users responded to a Kelly question.
"Not now. Daddy is now Professor »
"I do not know what Robert Kelly says about Korea, but his wife and children are GREAT"
Kelly's mother, Ellen said that she was delighted with the video and the best moments for her was the arrival of Jungi-a-Kim for children. She added that perhaps without knowing it,became the cause of the incident that touched the world: since the Kelly family often communicates with American relatives via video link, the children, hearing the sounds from the father's room, might have thought that the grandmother was calling - and rushed to the voice.Mother Ellen Kelly.
