"My wife deserves a medal", Kelly told the BBC.

Robert Kelly, an American associate professor at Pusan National University in South Korea, had been speaking to the BBC via Skype about the impeachment of president Park Geun-hye, when his daughter marched confidently into his home office. Kim also stated that she found it amusing watching it, despite the fact that during the initial interview she was flustered while trying to corral the children.

But some humourless commentators accused him of being heavy handed to toddler Miriam and baby James.

The video triggered accusations of discrimination in South Korea and elsewhere after some online posters overseas immediately assumed that Kelly's wife was a nanny.

Luckily, they didn't, so we could all have a joyful viral moment to distract us from the very bad stuff that makes up the rest of TV news. "It's amusing", Kelly told James Menendez, the BBC presenter who conducted the original interview, reports the Guardian.

They anxious the BBC would stop using him as an expert in foreign affairs.

Story continues after this video.

"Well, it was sort of a mixture of sort of surprise and embarrassment and amusement, as well as love and affection".

"Once my son came in the roller, there was nothing I could do", he said.

South Koreans have been just as charmed with the video as everyone else - perhaps more so for giving the country something to smile about during a political crisis.

"It was amusing", Kelly admitted about the whole scenario. "She was in a hippity-hoppity mood that day because of the school party". Look, that girl high-arms her way through life and (as Mashable points out), she doesn't have time for this sitting-still, stuffy-coat, listening-to-dad-talk nonsense.

When she arrives at his elbow, Kelly continues to face the camera but attempts to use his left arm to push her, gently but firmly, back.

"I don't know, man", he deadpans.

"We were anxious actually that the BBC would never call us again".

Josh and Anna Duggar are expecting baby no. 5
A lot of people still have not forgiven "19 Kids and Counting" star Josh Duggar for the scandals he caused two years ago. The couple is expecting their fifth child together and the expected delivery date is later this year.

The interviewer asked how that made them feel, and Kelly made it known that "Yeah, we were pretty uncomfortable with it". "I'm not the nanny - that's the truth - so I hope they stop arguing".

Korea expert Prof Robert Kelly and his family became viral hits when his live chat with news host James Menendez was interrupting by his two rowdy youngsters.

"Were you wearing pajamas at the time? I think you've got some children who need you!"

"As soon as she opened the door, I saw her image on my screen", Kelly told the paper, adding that he was entirely to blame.

"An overwhelming (amount of comments) that have been sent to us has been positive", Kelly says.

The parents said they're grateful for the overwhelmingly positive reaction the live interview has generated. "Yeah, we did", Kelly responded.
