During an interview with the BBC, Political Science Professor Robert Kelly was asked about the very serious topic of the ouster of South Korea’s President Park Geun-Hye.
As Kelly discussed the president’s impeachment, his two young children burst through the door to his home office where he was filming.
First came four year old Marion – dressed in bright yellow – who danced into the room and came up right behind her daddy. Soon after, baby brother James enters the office powering his way through in his walker.
The intrusion was quickly followed by Kelly’s frantic wife, Jung-a Kim, who came sliding into the room, desperately trying to get her charges under control and out of the room. The children can be heard wailing as James’ walker gets stuck in the doorway. A very stressed looking Jung-a Kim then jumps back in to shut the door behind her.
Kelly, an expert on US foreign relations in Korea, tried to maintain his composure through the hilarious incident, but he later stated on Twitter that he had a hard time keeping a straight face.
It turns out that the kids had good reason to barge in the room. Kelly’s mom, Ellen Kelly, 72, told the Daily Mail that it may have been all her fault. Mrs. Kelly and her husband Joseph regularly Skype with the children from their home in University Heights, Ohio.
Robert usually Skypes with us from his home office, which is where he did the interview. The kids probably heard voices coming from the computer and assumed it was us. It was just hilarious.
