Robert Kelly may well be one of the world’s preeminent political analysts on inter-Korean affairs and an associate professor in political science at South Korea’s Pusan National University. However, after finding global fame following his disastrous 2017 interview when his kids stormed his home office he’s also apparently become an expert on working from home in the age of COVID-19.
In Professor Kelly’s latest interview with the BBC – regarding Korea’s coronavirus response – the goodly Prof decides to take no chances and does the Skype interview with kids and wife in tow.
And, much like last time, children Marion and James are back up to their old misbehaving tricks.
When asked about the tribulations of working from home, Kelly said: “For us as you can see it’s very difficult, employers who have employees with kids our age it’s very difficult. I’m getting two hours work done a day maybe three.”
Kelly’s wife Jung-a Kim agreed, adding: “It’s very difficult to stay in the house for a very long time. We try to go out and see the flowers and the trees and they can shout and scream.”
