Young Bae has been an open book when it comes to her painful past in Korea. Now that she’s hit a stride in her career here in New York, it seems some of the fears from her past have come back to haunt her.
In this stirring clip from last night’s Black Ink Crew, Bae gets a call from her mom in Korea who is hysterical on the other end. It turns out that her abusive father found her mom on Facebook and has been sending threatening messages claiming that he plans to come after her. Bae and her entire family ran away from him after enduring years of verbal and physical abuse. After years of dodging him, Bae finally started to believe her family was safe, even with her being thousands of miles away in New York.
Bae’s mom abruptly ends the call, leaving Bae an emotional wreck. Bobby walks in to comfort her, but Bae is at a loss for what to do. “What can I do for her when I’m here?” she wonders out loud. “I’m far from where she’s at.” Watch the chilling clip above and don’t miss an all new Black Ink Crew next Wednesday at 9/8c.
