The professor who saw his children crash his BBC interview in 2017 has celebrated the seventh anniversary of the viral moment by sharing new photos of his family on social media.
Catch up: Robert Kelly, who teaches political science at Pusan National University, became known as the “BBC Dad” after the viral moment from the live BBC interview, where he offered commentary on South Korean politics. Marion, then a playful 4-year-old, barged into her father’s home office, followed by her younger brother James in his baby walker.
Despite the interruption, Kelly remained composed, while his wife, Jung-A Kim, frantically scooped the children out of the room.
