Are Joyce Ching and Kristoffer Martin an item?

"Tween Academy Class of 2012" stars Joyce Ching and Kristoffer Martin (Photos courtesy of GMA)Are Joyce Ching and Kristoffer Martin officially a couple? This is what “Tween Academy: Class of 2012” co-star Joshua Dionisio asked the two in a taped message during their “Correct or Reject” segment interview in GMA-7's “Showbiz Central” yesterday, August 14.

Besides being cast members of the upcoming “Tween Academy: Class of 2012,” Joyce and Kristoffer are onscreen partners in “Tween Hearts,” the Kapuso network's Sunday afternoon youth-oriented show.

Although Joyce and Kristoffer wear identical rings, the two explained they’re simply friendship rings.

“Binili ko ito nung Valentine's. Kasi may nakita akong ring. Cute sya rin. And di hamak na magkaibigan kami, sobrang kumportable kami sa isa't isa. Binigay ko yun as a friendship ring,” Kristoffer told “Showbiz Central.”

He added, “Syempre binigay ko yun as a sign na mag-iintay ako para sa tamang oras.”

The young actor clarified that he is not courting Joyce.

“Hindi pa naman ngayon, pero nagbabalak,” he said.

Does Kristoffer have a chance in case he decides to officially court Joyce?

“Opo, siguro. Sa tamang panahon, meron,” she said. “Mabait po (si Kristoffer) saka gentleman saka sweet.”

Kristoffer said he likes Joyce because she is “sobrang maalaga.”

“One time po kasi, sa taping ng 'Tween Hearts,' sa Enchanted Kingdom. Kasi nagaasaran kami sa Anchors Away,” he narrated.

Joyce continued: “Takot sya sumakay sa Anchors Away. So, ako, niyayabangan ko sya na, 'kalalaki mong tao, di mo kayang sumakay dyan.' Pinilit nyang sumakay. E dalawang beses kaming sumakay. So sa pangalawang beses, sabi ko, 'bumaba ka na kung nahihilo ka na. E, nagpupumilit pa rin sya. So pagbaba po, ayun, nasuka.”

“So, ayun, binigyan nya ako ng tubig...” Kristoffer ended.

Jealousy among tweens?

Joyce also said there is no jealousy or rivalry among “Tween Hearts” and “Tween Academy: Class of 2012” stars.

Was her friendship with Joshua adversely affected since rumors earlier this year pinpointed  to him  as the reason why Kristoffer was removed from the now-defunct “Nita Negrita?”

“Wala pong naapektuhan sa aming lahat ng mga Tweens. Kahit si Kristoffer at saka si Joshua, normal pa rin, nagdo-DoTa pa nga sila palagi,” she explained. “Close po kami (ni Joshua).

Joyce added, “Nung lumabas yung issue na yun, parang, 'wala lang, hayaan nyo lang.'”
