Personal life

Bae was born in South Korea. Her family moved to the United States when she was 12. At age 16, her skill as a violinist caught the eye of Dorothy DeLay. Bae attended school in New York from 1999 to 2002, The Juilliard School.

In 2000, Bae performed in her hometown of Seoul, South Korea at the peace concert with Luciano Pavarotti for an audience of 90,000. She also performed at the Rheingau Musik Festival with The Poland Philharmonic and continued touring with the Philharmonic throughout Poland and Germany in 2001.

In 2007, as a Red Cross Ambassador, Bae was asked to make a speech at The United Nations to welcome fellow South Korean Ban Ki-Moon as Secretary General. In 2007 and 2008, she was invited by the Nobel Peace Laureates Summit in Rome where she performed in front of guests such as Mikhail Gorbachev, George Clooney and Peter Gabriel. In 2008, as an ambassador to the Red Cross in Asia, she went to South Korea and North Korea to perform before the presidents of both countries. She was the first South Korean to record with the North Korean symphony to help raise the money to build proper hospitals in North Korea.
