"I think one of your children just walked in", says his in-studio colleague.
"There's a first time for everything", the anchor gleefully points out as the interview wraps up.
Anything can happen on live television, and it seems South Korean expert Professor Robert Kelly learned that the hard way on March 10 when his live interview on worldwide television was suddenly interrupted by his adorable children.
Kelly's daughter bounds right into the room without a care in the world, while dad gives her the stiff arm to prevent any more shenanigans.
Professor Kelly, appearing remarkably composed if slightly irritated, tries to push the child away - but wait, there is another one.
Meanwhile baby James follows his sister through now open doorway and uses a baby walker to make his way to Mr Kelly, a professor of political science and worldwide relations based in Busan, South Korea. Just when he thought it couldn't get any worse though, a second child joins the party. Kid shrieks from behind the door peppered the rest of poor Kelly's interview.
"My apologies, my apologies", he repeats before closing his eyes.
Although the door to the room Professor Kelly was in was shut, his young daughter opened it and danced in while her father was fielding questions.
Then, the piece de resistance: the woman who came sliding in like a cartoon character to wrangle the children out of the room.
