Yesterday, South Korean president Park Geun-hye was impeached on corruption charges, the first time a leader had been removed from office in the country under such circumstances. Enter Robert Kelly, associate professor of political science at Pusan International University and proud father of (at least) two. As an expert on politics based in South Korea, this was Kelly’s moment to shine in a televised interview with BBC News about what the impeachment could mean for the region. His kids, however, had other plans.
In the video, first a little girl in a yellow sweater comes bouncing into the room, arms swinging, and walks right up to the camera. Kelly takes that in stride, but is visibly less pleased when his younger child wanders in in a bouncy chair, followed swiftly by a horrified woman who grabs them and escorts them out of the room, knocking books off of a table in her haste to get the fuck out of there. We’re guessing that little girl is in some serious time out right now, but hopefully Kelly doesn’t hold it against her. After all, someday you’ll all have a good laugh about this. Someday.
