That is the city located in the east part of Korea.
That is the city located on the east part of Korea.
Which is neat?
Isn't it depend on the context? Let's say if we are talking about a map, how will it be?
Can it be?;
When I was studying geography, I learnt that (x) city located on the east part of Korea on the map.
Later edit: I realised you might have thanked Naamplao sorry

But I think you´re both right!
He was referring to the city and the country itself.
And you on the map...
I was asking for some confirmation too, I have some (if not so much) problems with Prepositions.
It changes a bit if you were creating a map of the country. Then you would use the preposition "on" since you are physically writing on the surface of the paper. For example:
Where does Seoul go on the map?
It is in the eastern part of the country at longitude ##/ latitude ##.
Really these prepostion things are soo complicated. Thank you very much Naamplao for the answer. But I think it's almost impossible not to make mistakes, unless you are not a NES. It has many rules and each rule has exceptions. For eg. I couldn't catch any logic, why on campus but in University. So I kind of gave up about prepositions, and just beg to natives to tolerate me
