You need to back off the adjuster located at the top the brake assembly.There's an rubber grommet on the backing plate.You need to use a short flat screwdriver and ratchet back the star wheel in which you acess through the small hole in the backing plate.Now there's an arm that rests on the notches of the star wheel of the adjuster so the brakes don't back off, as the going down the road.This needs to be pushed away from the star wheel in for you to back off the adjuster.This will contract the brake shoes away from the drum.This will allow you to remove the drum.
**A word of caution: if you don't move that arm, You'll be able to adjust the star wheel!but your now expanding the shoes closer to the drums! If it doesn't have automatic adjusting brakes so,you'll have to expand the shoes one click every 7000 miles or click it then spin the drum,continue to adust until you feel an slight drag on the drum as you spin it!

SOURCE: Rear Brakes drum 2004 Kia Rio
The rear drums are held on by a spindle nut. You first must remove the dust cap then unstake the nut and remove it. Behind that is a retaining washer and the outer bearing. The bearings can become a little stuck in which case a hammer can usually persuade them to loosen up.

SOURCE: rear drum brake locked up
remove the brake line to release the pressure. Look at the brake fluid to see if its contaminated. Its common for when the wrong fluid is added to brake fluid you will cause all the rubber parts to swell. and turn the fluid black. You may need to replace all brake components if this is the case. If the fluid is not contaminated you may be able to just release the pressure and wiggle the drum or pry to get it off.. Then you may just need to replace the wheel cylinder and or the brake hose. When you get the drum off you may notice the wheel cylinder has been leaking. With the line open press on the brake to verify the line is colgged or not.. When done bleed the whole system
