By now, I’m willing to bet my first born child that you’ve already seen the video of the BBC’s South Korea correspondent Robert E Kelly giving his hard-hitting, professional opinion on the latest developments on South Korea’s unfolding corruption scandal.
As Kelly was talking, one of his children bounded into the room, completely oblivious to the fact that her dad was broadcasting to thousands of people on BBC News. Not long after, the girl’s younger sibling came rolling in. Kelly’s wife then attempted to resolve the situation by dragging the children out of the room, which only made things more hilarious.
The BBC’s YouTube video has now been seen by 19 million people, with many more millions expected to have watch the clip on Twitter or various other social media channels. The family have since explained that their eldest child Marion was in such a “hippity-hoppity mood” on the day of the viral video because she had celebrated her birthday the day before.
Speaking in during meta interview interview, Kelly said: “I think the reason why this went viral is because my real life sort of punched through the fake cover I had created for television. I create this veneer of professionalism inside my house. I wear a jacket in front of the camera. Then suddenly reality bursts in.”
Even after their first explanatory interview, however, the family has still found themselves subject to intense media interest. Since the 19 million viewers didn’t seem to be forgetting the video in a hurry, Kelly and his family decided to hold a press conference to share their side of the story with the world.
