No. Seoul has some very catchy architecture, and more intimate hills that wrap around the city, not afar.

Seoul has a lot more hills than that.

Towards Inwangsan





Towards Gangnam





There are many hiking trails covering the less touristy hills. Consult : http://asiaenglish.visitkorea.or.kr/...jsp?cid=309631

Chicago's building heights drop off quite spectacularly not long outside the Loop. Are there any plans to increase the density along the subway lines and create a few mini-skylines out there?
