After disappointing Twitter with an interview in February, where her children did not break through the door, Professor Robert E. Kelly has given fans what they want in a new interview with the BBC.
Professor Kelly, or better known, BBC Dad, appeared on BBC World News this morning with his family; Jung-a’s wife, Marion’s daughter, and James’s son, are delightful viewers and Twitter users.
The family became famous in March 2017 when Professor Kelly was being interviewed directly by BBC news. His daughter walked into the office and went straight to her father while her younger brother followed the baby walker. Kelly failed to try to push her daughter gently, but his wife came to the rescue and brought the two children out of the room, while Kelly stopped and apologized.
Kelly was then interviewed by Sky in February 2020 when she mentioned that her children would not go to school the next day due to a coronavirus outbreak, and the audience impatiently watched the door waiting for their entrance.
Because the children were absent, viewers took to Twitter to express their disappointment, asking, “Where is the baby?” and beg, “Come on, Bob, give us the content we need.”
This time, the whole family was on camera – intentionally – being interviewed by the BBC about life in South Korea during the pandemic and locking up of the corona virus.
Jung-a explains what they have done during the locking and the children delight the audience with their antics, with Marion jumping around, hugging her father and stroking her hair, while James is restless and tries to jump from his mother’s lap. He finally succeeded and left the room, only to return with a video game.

Kelly tried to apologize for the behavior of her children’s lives and said: “Sorry, my children …” the BBC interviewer David Eades said: “You cannot apologize … That’s one thing you can never ask for sorry for now, that’s part of the scene. “
Scott Bryan shared an interview clip on Twitter and said: “Our family (favorite) omg has returned to BBC world news”
Kelly has updated her Twitter followers with what her family did when locked up. On March 16, Kelly tweeted a photo of herself and James, saying: “This is what happens when I sit at my desk now to try to work. Basically it’s impossible for me to work now. Be nice to your employees with children.” After two week locked up at home, the children will climb the wall. “
