She continued, "When I first saw him, he seemed very cold and hard-to-approach. I felt like I wouldn't be able to become close to him." 

She resumed, "It actually turned out he's a warm and caring person though. He looks as if he doesn't really care what goes on around him, but he takes such great care of everyone."
