Sept. 17 is the day that "Squid Game" premiered last year. During the event, Garcetti praised "Squid Game" as a series that greatly contributed to the expansion of cultural diversity and described its success as "a victory in the fight to grow representation of the AAPI [Asian American and Pacific Islander] community in film and entertainment, exposing audiences to Korean culture and traditions while paving the way for other AAPI communities to also have their stories told."
