Professor whose BBC interview became an internet sensation appears on news again

Gatecrashing kids return to delight BBC News viewers Television

'BBC Dad' and his kids return to TV to brighten these dark times

"This is spring season in Korea, so we try to go see the flowers and trees - and they can shout and scream".

Robert Kelly, a political scientist living with his wife and two children in Busan, South Korea, returned for his latest appearance with the British broadcaster to talk about the corona virus and what his family has been like ready at home - a subject Kelly and his wife, Jung-a Kim, are basically experts on.

After his 2017 interview was shared across the internet, Kelly said that many parents reached out to him.

Not to be outdone, baby James soon rolled into view in his stroller, swiftly followed by Kelly's very stressed and very mortified wife, Kim Jung-a, who quickly took the kids out of the room.

He added that he thinks people in South Korea, where the Kelly family lives, are dealing with isolation well and are following the government's advice. "I think social compliance here has been pretty high".

"Three weeks ago it was very very hard", Kelly said. "You don't see the kind of stuff that you've seen in the United States, with like people crowding beaches and people refusing to stay off the subways and stuff like that". The South Koreans have responded really well, which is why the curve has flattened out to just 100 a day. "So it's actually been pretty successful".

In an amusing throwback to their original TV cameo, Professor Kelly remarks, "Sorry, my kids".

"Oh no, you should never apologize, it's something you can never apologize for the moment". "It's part of the scene".

"There he goes!" Kelly said.

"This is what happens when I sit down at my desk now to try to work", Kelly said via Twitter, posting a photo of his pajama-clad son perched on his shoulders.

As quarantine moves on, Kelly wants to remind employers to be kind to their workers with young children. "After two weeks penned up in the house, those kids are gonna be climbing the walls".

"Many of the comments we received were from parents who had had similar experiences, such as locking themselves in the bathroom so their kids could not interrupt a radio interview", Kelly wrote in a 2018 article for the Interpreter.

Flash onward to 2020's coronavirus pandemic, as well as several moms and dads possibly really feel a great deal like Kelly many thanks to an untidy combination of college closures, individuals functioning from residence as well as Zoom seminars.
