The Wikipedia article on the Nuri rocket says it uses Jet-A / LOX.
Can that be right?

KARI only says they use "kerosene". No mention is made of Jet-A being used.

I just checked Wikipedia and found out that Jet A and Jet A-1 are kerosene-type fuels. This link also states that Jet A and Jet-A are forms of kerosene:

Yes, Jet-A is standard jet fuel, which is similar to kerosene.
But I thought its imprecise density and variable hydrocarbon content and sulphur content made it impractical for rocket engines.

Do you have any info about the 500 kg/1000 kg SSO solid fuel launch vehicle planned for 2025 launch? Never saw anything about it except for a test launch of the upper stages last year.

Not much really. Like I've wrote on the small ROK launcher thread, it is a MoD project under ADD, as opposed to other Korean SLVs which are KARI programs. I'll write what I know on that thread.
