The daughter from family's viral BBC interview keeps stealing the show
Long may it continue.

“WE THOUGHT IT was a disaster”, said Professor Robert Kelly, talking about the interview that was gatecrashed by his young daughter and son almost a week ago.

“I communicated immediately to the BBC afterwards I apologised to them. I said that if they never called us back or never asked me to be on television again I would completely understand.

And I had assumed that this would end any television appearances, that people would see this as widely unprofessional and no one would ever call me again and I’d never speak on television again.

The opposite has happened actually. But people are falling more for Kelly’s daughter than anyone else.

Yesterday, Kelly and his family held a press conference in Pusan National University and once again, Marion, his daughter, stole the show.

“We love our children very much, and we’re happy that our family blooper, our error there on television brought so much laughter to so many people.” Long may it continue. Here’s an introduction to the family from immediately after the interview going viral.
