It was the video which had us all in tears laughing last week, however now the family at the centre of a BBC interview which went viral have spoken out for the first time.

In case you missed the video, and you've no idea what we're talking about, here it is:

Professor Robert Kelly was on BBC World Service discussing the South Korean government, when he was ambushed by his two kids mid interview.

Eventually, his wife came in and brought the kids back out, with a bit of a struggle, before making one final reach for the door handle to close it back over again.

However now, the family have since spoken out about the footage, with interviews to both the BBC and the Wall Street Journal.

Professor Kelly described the video as "a mixture of surprise and embarrassment and amusement, and I suppose love and affection, I mean it was terribly cute. It is really funny.

"Everybody we know seems to think it's pretty hysterical."

However, they've admitted they felt 'uncomfortable' at the assumption that his wife, Kim Jung-a, was the nanny of the children as oppposed to their mother.
