The BBC dad gave another interview from his office — but he remembered to lock the door this time

The INSIDER Summary: 


Two weeks ago, political science expert Robert E. Kelly discussed the very serious impeachment of the president of South Korea with BBC News. He appeared on a livestream from his office based in South Korea, where he is a professor.

Midway through the interview his daughter Marion bounded in his office “in a hippity-hoppity mood,” as Kelly later described, with his eight-month-old son James in hot pursuit. Moments later, his wife, Kim Jung-A, slid into the room and whisked them away.

It was a viral moment for the history books.

Yesterday, Kelly gave his first live television interview since the incident, to CNN. He discussed a recent failed nuclear rocket launch test from North Korea and the political implications of the United States trying to strike a deal with the Kim regime.

His kids, though, didn’t burst into the room this time. As he said on Twitter, Kelly was sure to lock his door.

It was a disappointment to some viewers, who were hoping to see Marion and James again.

Kelly’s daughters interrupting his first interview was a huge viral phenomenon. It inspired parody videos, like one about what it would be like if a woman had her children interrupt a live television interview. And a followup interview with Kelly about the moment for The Wall Street Journal became their most-viewed article of all time after just a few hours.

His initial reaction also inspired a flurry of internet speculation that he wasn’t wearing pants, but he told The New York Times that he was.

Later, Kelly gave a press conference about the video, but his daughter, Marion, stole the show once again, inspiring new memes with her serious expression, adorable coat, and chic glasses.

In the Wall Street Journal interview, Kelly blamed himself for not locking his own door.

“I made this minor mistake that turned my family into YouTube stars. It’s pretty ridiculous,” he said.

He made sure to keep his kids out this time. But it’s our loss.
