+1 Apparently Dongtan is a part of a city called Hwaseong and therefor not a small city as such. But it looks very nice

Yes and No.
You are right. Dongtan city is a part of Hwaseong city.
Actually, Hwaseong is more close to the concept of county, not city that most people here imagine.

Also, Hwaseoung city(county) is really small. ( I mean, the area is not that small but population is small.) The most of area are rural area with many rice fields.
That is one of reasons why Korean government built Dongtan, the city in the middle of rural area, to seek balanced development between regions.

Ajaccio, capital city of Corsica, has a little skyline mostly made of commie blocks. The city is mostly known to be the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte.
The urban area only counts 64,000 people. The metro area is of 97,000 people.

Kind of. It's part of the Itajaí-Balneário Camboriú Metro Area, which is about 580,000 people.
