Ulsan is the richest city in Korea, in terms of GDP per person, which is almost three times higher than everage of korea.

Ulsan was the dirtiest city in Korea as an industrial output city.
But Ulsan has become a clean and green city.

^^^ the reason behind why it was called the "dirtiest" city in Korea is because most heavy industries like automobile/ship-building is done in the city. But the city itself is just as any other Korean city but one of the richest per GDP

Compared to other Korean cities, Ulsan strikes me as a quiet city. I don't know why, it just does.

Ulsan is wellknown to me as it has the old landmark of Malmö, Sweden: Kockumkranen!

In Malmö:



Today:


The Kockums Crane (Swedish: Kockumskranen) was a 138 metres (453 ft) high gantry crane at the Kockums shipyard in Malmö, Sweden. It was built in 1973–74 and could lift 1,500 tonnes. The rail width was 175 metres (574 ft) and the rail length 710 metres (2,329 ft). The crane was used to build about 75 ships. Its last use in Malmö was in 1997, when it lifted the foundations of the high pillars of the Oresund Bridge.

The crane was first sold in the early 1990s to the Danish company Burmeister & Wain, but the company went bankrupt before the crane could be moved.

The crane was a landmark of Malmö from its time of construction until its dismantling in the summer of 2002, when it was shipped to Ulsan in South Korea, after being sold to Hyundai Heavy Industries for $100,000.[1] The Koreans have dubbed the crane "Tears of Malmoe", due to the notion that the residents of Malmö wept when they saw their crane being towed away.[

Some people still call Ulsan a HYUNDAI town.
Without HYUNDAI, Ulsan will be just one of unkown fishing villages in korea.
