In 2017, a political science professor transformed before our eyes into "BBC Dad" and broke us out of our stagnant, doldrum lives when his spirited children marched into his office during a live television interview via Skype.

Kelly, his partner Jung- a Kim, child Marion as well as boy James went back to BBC News for an additional online meeting today as well as his youngsters determined to take the limelight once more with their adorable shenanigans (over).

Kelly, along with his wife and two children, returned to the network Thursday to discuss the challenges he's facing while working from home amid the coronavirus pandemic, when people have been asked to stay indoors to help stem its spread.

He added that he thinks people in South Korea, where the Kelly family lives, are dealing with isolation well and are following the government's advice.

"It is very hard to stay in the house for a long time", said his wife.

"It's just really, really tough", Kelly said.

"We try to go out and see the flowers and the trees and they can shout and scream".

"I think the South Koreans have done really well", said Kelly.

As Professor Kelly relayed his very serious views, Marion - wearing sunglasses and doing a amusing walk-dance - toddled in and took a seat behind him. You don't see the kind of thing you see in the USA with crowded beaches and people refusing to stay off the subways and things like that. The South Koreans have responded really well, which is why the curve has flattened out to just 100 a day.

Shortly after Kelly's opening night when viral in 2017, the household stabbed in the back the air to review their newly found popularity.

As quarantine continues, Kelly wants to remind employers to be kind to their workers with young children. "It is basically impossible for me to work now. It's part of the scene." the interviewer jokes.

The experiences of Kelly and Kim reflect the millions of parents in the United States that are struggling to balance everything.

"This is what happens when I sit down at my desk now to try to work", Kelly tweeted along with a photo of his son sitting on his shoulders.

He said the reaction on social media had been astonishing - and mostly positive - and he had been forced to switch off Twitter and Facebook alerts and put his phone on airplane mode. "We were very moved by them".
