Wonder’s fifth-year celebration also marks
the exciting growth of Kroma PubCo, a digital publishing network under Kroma Entertainment

Wonder, a pop culture and style platform for the youth market, celebrated its fifth anniversary with the event “Wonderfvl: #WonderTurnsV”, held at Apotheka, Poblacion, Makati in April.

Themed “I’m With The Band,” a throwback to 2000s punk rock, the night featured exciting games and great music with performances by crowd favorites Zild Benitez and crwn.

The event reunited Wonder family, friends and more who came in their best black, grown-up grunge. Guests gamely participated in a memorable karaoke night and other fun activities such as a “How 2000s Are You?” quiz.

Wonder’s fifth-year celebration also marks the exciting growth of Kroma PubCo, a  digital publishing network that enables cultures, creates content, sparks conversations and builds communities for the youth market, under Kroma Entertainment.

“We’re also celebrating how much we’ve grown in the last five years,” shared Head of Publishing Sarah Santiago during her speech.

“From a singular brand, we have evolved into a digital publishing business under Kroma Entertainment and have added FreebieMNL, your one-stop destination for living your best life, to our portfolio. This year, we launched Complex Philippines, the authority on youth culture in the Philippines — particularly in sneaker culture, music and sports,” she added.

Santiago said there’s even more reason to celebrate because of the growing B2B business Co:Lab, which also has a community of local digital brands.

“We are proud to call them our partners,” she said.

These partner communities include Unprude, a safe space where women can explore their sexuality; the Pinoy food channel Lunchboxer; TNC Pro ML, a professional esports team for Mobile Legends; Pinoygamer, the country’s official gaming news channel and community forum; and DIY Travel, the biggest travel community in the Philippines.
