Nice! I love the odd look and growth habit of Korean Melody Shark! One of my favorite "unusual" flytraps :)
1. How big do the traps tend to get?

Less than an inch. They're normally somewhere between 1/2 an inch to nearly 3/4 of an inch (on average) on the largest plants.
2. Does it grow upward year round?

Yes, except when it is dormant.
3. When it flowers is it sterile? Possible to get viable seed?

I've read that it is sterile, but this year I plan to verify that.
4.what kind of growth habits does it have? ( vigorous or average grower)?

It's an average grower in terms of vigor. Doesn't seem to divide too much, so that helps it grow larger more quickly. It helps if you feed it because it struggles to catch its own prey.

Long Red Fingers does make the same size traps, but it is definitely not sterile. I have harvested seed from Long Red Fingers and have quite a few x Long Red Fingers seedlings floating around the greenhouses.

Long Red Fingers doesn't produce a lot of seed because its stigmas are a bit deformed, but it can be successfully pollinated so good luck with the LRF x A2 cross!
