I have a mountain named Ul, where cars are born.

I have a great farmland, where the cars cross.

I have a mountain of cauldrons, where ships are.

I have a benevolent river, where airplanes are.

I have a king, who is one of two "great"s.

I also have a great hill and a province of light.

There is the remaining one that I haven't mentioned.

What am I, and what is the remaining one?

Subtle hint:

These are cross-lingual wordplay.

Moderate hint:

I'm in two words. The remaining one is in five letters.

Decisive hint:

Unfortunately, I have a sibling.

I think you are in

South Korea

and the remaining one is

Seoul

I have a mountain named Ul, where cars are born.

Ulsan - where "san" is Korean for mountain and Ulsan has the world's largest automobile assembly plant operated by the Hyundai Motor Company.

I have a great farmland, where the cars cross.

Daejeon translates as "grand field" and is at the crossroads of the national road transport routes.

I have a mountain of cauldrons, where ships are.

Busan translates as "cauldron mountain" and is the largest port city in South Korea.

I have a benevolent river, where airplanes are.

Incheon translates as "kind river" and Incheon International Airport is South Korea's primary international airport.

I have a king, who is one of two "great"s.

Sejong was named in honour of King Sejong the Great. (I think the other "Great" was Gwanggaeto)

I also have a great hill

Daegu - whose name means "large hill".

and a province of light.

Gwangju literally translates as Province of Light

There is the remaining one that I haven't mentioned.

These are 7 of the 8 first-level cities in South Korea. The only one missing is Seoul, the capital.
