On March 10, Professor Robert Kelly was doing what the expert on South Korea does regularly — discussing a political situation on live television with a BBC News reporter via Skype. In this case, the topic was South Korean President Park Geun-hye's unprecedented March 9th impeachment for committing “acts that violated the Constitution and laws.”

Things were going as expected until Kelly’s daughter, Marion, decided to waltz in. The professor tried to continue talking while gently nudging the child to leave. But before he could convince her to leave, his nine-month-old son, James, rolled into the room in his walker. The video ends with Kelly’s wife, Jung-a Kim, frantically trying to get both kids out of the room without being seen on camera! Not surprisingly, the hilarious footage that has garnered over 2 million views since its YouTube release has made the family, especially the adorable kids, instant stars!

    Oh my goodness!!!! This is so funny >.< The mom was so awesome. I love how she dragged them out- one kid in one hand one kid in a another, slide on the floor to pretend you aren't there and then go out the door, having technical issues with the rolling thingy and then be on the floor still while shutting the door while your husband is on live tv and so are you.

                      I feel so bad for the man who is betting interview but seriously the best part is when the mom comes in a moment later to close the door.!!
