The family at the centre of THAT viral interview are back for another one

The kids steal the show once more.

‘IT’S BEEN PRETTY unreal’.

That’s how Prof Robert Kelly described life for his family since last Friday when a live BBC interview with him went viral.

The video took over social media and showed Kelly trying to stay focused on Korean politics as his young son and daughter broke into his study to steal the show.

Sounding like a man who wanted to move on from his online stardom, Kelly went back on BBC along with his wife Jung-a Kim and children Marion and James to “bookend” his new-found fame.

Despite this, he could completely understand why everyone found the farcical video so funny.

“We’ve watched it multiple times too and our families have watched it and everyone we know seems to find it pretty hysterical, so we understand why people find it so funny,” he said.

And what about Jung-a?

“Yea, we just laughed a lot but we were worried a little bit more,” she said, explaining that they were at first worried that they’d never be invited back on TV.

Not a chance.
