Laica is an ambivert; she loves being alone but gets rowdy with the people she's familiar with. She is an aspiring radio DJ that reads people's stories. When not cooking, you can probably find her under a blanket, watching the latest Korean drama series. She loves complimenting others and make them realize of the goodness they have.
