I was in Busan last year and it was booming in terms of new tall buildings. The Haeundae beach area was pretty nice...they've got one of the biggest annual film fests in Asia there as well, interesting city. When I was there a lot of people were regarding the city as 'Dirty Busan'. It did have some quite grimy areas(but don't most cities?), but you could also tell that some new areas looked very modern and clean. The downtown area around the central subway station did smell quite rank in the summer mind you!
