I don't know much about Kia's so this is a guess. Best I can do. Get a helper to stand behind your car to see if you have brake lights. If not, the fuse for brake lights is probably blown, and you must have your foot on brake to get it out of Park. Check your owners manual for which fuse..

Turn the head lights on to see if you have power, im thinking your battery is dead, that will keep it locked in park by the shift interlock and stop it from turning over

The brake is rock hard because you need the vacuum from a running engine for the vacc assist.
