Re: how to remove the back breaks of a 1999 hyundai...
This isn't uncommon; some parking brake setups may cause the shoes to drag on the drum while trying to remove it.
If your parking brake has been ineffective in recent times, the cable may be rusted in place.
Try putting the hand brake on HARD (**** on it), then releasing it several times to break the friction that may be present.
If this doesn't work, try doing the same thing at each wheel.
If this still doesn't free the drum, use a hard plastic or brass hammer to tap firmly on the outside of the drum, rotating it as you go.

My hyundai had the emergency brake bracket (mounted to the back of the caliper) rust solid. I used rust eater to get it to slightly break loose. I eventually had to replace both calipers. It is a very consistant problem. My new ones need alot of attention now as well I covered them in caliper paint to help with the rusting. The pads are very simple replacement 2 bolts on the back of the caliper. Remove the pads then screw back in the piston with a import tool from any auto parts store put pads back in, put back on the caliper.
for drum brakes with sealed hub(all one piece) remove lug nuts and wheel.
spray penetrating oil around studs if there is a big phillips head screw visible remove it with impact driver/if not use big ballpeen hammer ,tap on flat of drum near studs(becareful not to hit them) until drum loosens(your creating a shockwave to loosen rust)
once drum is off there are 4-bolts coming in from behind backing plate, remove them then hub should be able to be removed w/a little persuation from hammer.
with out sealed hub ,
remove dust cap,cotterpin,star washer(if equipped) do not re use cotter pin
remove nut then washer, wiggle brake drum and front bearing will come out.
put nut on shaft tighten 2-3 turns grab drum by sides and pull towards you this should remove drum leaving inner bearing/seal on shaft
to replace reverse procedure making sure to pack new bearings w/grease(take drum and use long punch to remove bearing races, use race/seal installer to install new races
