Blasting News recently reported on the hilarious viral video, where a BBC World reporter was interviewing Professor Robert E. Kelly about the situation in South Korea. During the interview, hilarity ensued when first his daughter and then his baby son came into the room, followed swiftly by the children's mother. Kelly handled the situation with aplomb and a smile at the time, but it seems it was reasonably stressful for the family. Readers can watch that video here.

The BBC had them back on the show to ask them how they felt about their sudden shot to world fame.

First and foremost, it seems the Kelly family were more concerned about whether the BBC would ever have him back on the show, but their minds were set at ease when James Menendez, the BBC reporter, said, "Well, here we are."

New experience for the Kelly family

Kelly said they had never had an experience quite like this in their lives. He said it got to the stage where they had to turn off the phones, Facebook and Twitter, etc., but added that he was pleased to be able to "bookend" the situation with the BBC. Kelly, an expert on South Korea, then went on to introduce his wife, Jung-a Kim, and their young children, Marion and baby James.

When asked how it has been for her the last couple of days, Jung-a Kim said it has been a little stressful but they are trying to handle it.

Menendez then points out that for at least 24-48 hours, the Kelly family was the most famous in the world. Kelly went on to say they received a "massive wave" of emails after the show aired. He did say they understand why people found the video so enjoyable.

Why it happened

It turns out Jung-a Kim was recording the interview on the TV in the living room when it happened, so she was distracted until she suddenly saw Marian on the TV.

She then frantically ran to her husband's office to retrieve the kids.

The family was then asked what they made of the media's assumption that Jung-a Kim was the children's nanny. Jung-a Kim got a little flustered, saying no, she was "Bob's wife," and adding she doesn't believe she used too much force to pull the children out of the room.

She said she did her best in the situation, to save the interview. Kelly said they were "pretty uncomfortable" with the suggestion. Jung-a Kim then said she hoped that people would enjoy the viral video and not argue about it, because she's not the nanny, it's not true.

Menendez said how Kelly had managed to keep a straight face throughout and asked him his thoughts when the "intruder" arrived. Kelly said how Skype has a "picture in the picture" so he was able to see Marian as soon as she entered the room. He said he hoped his wife would eventually see this and come to the rescue. As can be seen from the video, he tried to push Marian behind his chair as there was a box of toys and books, which he hoped would distract her.

But then James appeared on the scene, so there was nothing he could do but hope his wife would arrive. Kelly also hoped the BBC would cut the interview short. Menendez said they considered it, but if they had, viewers wouldn't have had a full view of the fun incident.

Kelly in pajamas?

Menendez had one more question - something many had speculated on. He asked if the professor was wearing pajama trousers at the time of the interview, as it was late in South Korea. Kelly said no. It turns out they had just attended their daughter's birthday party at the kindergarten and were wearing normal clothes. Kelly then stressed, "Yes, I was wearing pants and no, it wasn't staged," as people had started asking if the incident was faked to get attention.

Kelly said in closing that he doesn't want his children to think they can't come into the room, but it is one of those work/life issues you have to face.
