Four years ago, Pusan National University political science professor Robert Kelly appeared in a BBC interview to talk about South Korean President Park Geun-Hye.

During his serious virtual discussion, Kelly dressed formally in a suit and tie. However, he unexpectedly rose to fame after his two children hilariously interrupted the call.

While speaking, the professor’s four-year-old daughter, Marion, burst into the room and adorably walked to his side with enthusiasm while her dad calmly tried to push her a little backward.

However, Marion’s little brother, James, followed into the room with help from his baby walker. Things got funnier with Kelly’s wife, Kim Jung-A, panicked and frantically got her kids out of the room.

After his unforgettable interview, Kelly made his mark as the “BBC Dad” and was applauded by the network for his composure and professionalism despite the reality of work-from-home situations.

Marion understands the viral video in some way because her classmates and friends have mentioned it.

Recently, the professor shared a video and a photo of his kids, shocking everyone over how much they grew in the past four years. Kelly tweeted a video of Marion playing the cello alongside the caption:

“BBC Daughter plays ‘Jingle Bells.’"

He shared a snap of his adorable little boy, James, hiding inside a closet before his kindergarten class in a succeeding tweet. According to the BBC Dad, James does not know about his seconds of international fame.

However, Marion understands the viral video in some way because her classmates and friends have mentioned it. Kelly returned to BBC News last year to talk about the pandemic and difficult work-from-home situations.

Similarly, a Florida father with five kids went viral after sharing the poster he made while working from home. The sign read, “Dad is in a meeting. DO NOT ENTER.”

There were also instructions written for his children when they see their dad, David Kuhl, in a meeting. Like many parents working remotely, Kuhl has to balance work and family amid the pandemic.
