Wet Dress Rehearsal of the KSLV-II is completed! The vehicle is in good condition, and is now ready for flight. A small problem with the launch pad air pressure system is found, but there will be no change of the launch date. (October 21th)
[dated September 7]

So the launch is on schedule since the date was announced back in February:

Apparently KSLV-II's 2nd launch has now been scheduled on June 15 (needs someone who reads Korean to confirm): https://twitter.com/kari2030/status/1497100491737923584

The Nuri (KSLV-2) rocket carried out its first successful orbital launch today. Is there any latest word on construction of the Nuri rocket scheduled for launch in December?

In this video, you can see that in the second 00:10 and in the minute 01:58 comes out what looks like another rocket, if so, I guess it is already well advanced to achieve a second launch this year.
I publish information in Spanish about space and rockets.

Is it possible that South Korea could increase the rate of production of Nuri rockets to 4 rockets pear year so as to allow the South to use homegrown SLVs to launch into orbit sophisticated spy satellites to spy on North Korea?

They are in the initial production/initial operational capability phase. They are not there yet on their roadmap.

Some interesting information regarding KSLV-IIA. As I've mentioned before, KSLV-IIA was supposed to be an improved variant of KSLV-II that was planned as a follow-up development. There were various improvements to the rocket ranging from improved inert mass ratio, improved engine performance (upgraded 1st stage based on improvements to KRE-075 and a new SC 9tf 3rd stage motor), boosters (both liquid and solid considered), etc.

It was ultimately scrapped in 2020 in favor of KSLV-III

Earlier KSLV-II improved variant proposals with boosters and its performance.
