How to get help from the country.

I'm 22 and I am a US citizen but I'm in my native country forcibly right now because of my father. I really want to slip out of my house secretly from my father and come back to the States. I am just too afraid of my father and can't stay with him anymore. And my mother and my sister are in the same situation as me. I would like to ask if it's still possible for three of us to ask the States for some help. Or I would also like to ask are there any different ways for getting help.

I will tell my mother and my sister about the American embassy!!
Thank you for asking :) We are safe, but my father is very violently, and use violent language a lot that greatly affected me mentally. And he holds everything, and three of us just have to do whatever he says.
I am in South Korea right now.

Present yourself at the nearest U.S. Embassy or consulate, explain your circumstances, and ask for assistance. If no U.S. Embassy is available to you, go to the Swiss, British, Canadian, or Australian Embassy, and ask them to contact a U.S. consular officer. If you are in fear for your life, stay at the Embassy. It is the territory of the country it serves, and cannot be entered by unauthorized personnel.
