When asked to clarify if Ryan is courting her, Coleen smiled and exclaimed, "Ay, naku! Hindi ko talaga alam dun!

"Akala ko lahat joke-joke lang! Tapos sinabi niya sa SNN [Showbiz New  Ngayon] na nanliligaw daw siya.

"Wala akong alam dun! Hindi ko talaga alam. Siguro manhid ako!"

Does Ryan Bang stand a chance?

Coleen answered, "Sa ngayon po kasi kakapasok ko lang sa showbiz, so I wanna be stable muna in the industry bago po ako ma-distract.

"Ngayon, hindi pa talaga. Honestly, hindi pa... I have so much to work on."

So will she make Ryan wait then?

Coleen let out a chuckle and said, "Mag-antay siya!"

Although she is not allowed to be specific about her upcoming projects, Coleen mentioned that she is definitely working on them.

She is certain not to star in the Kapamilya network's forthcoming teen-oriented program Growing Up­­ because of her existing iced tea commercial project with Neil Coleta, who will appear in the said show with Way Back Home stars Julia Montes and Kathryn Bernardo.

Nonetheless, "bigger projects" are set for the Coleen and Neil in the future.
