Question about Kia Cars & Trucks
Suspect that you have put the thermostat in wrong
the body of the thermostat is in the block or head
I suspect that the thermostat was at the bottom hose into the block and that would account for the pressure in the top hose as the thermostat is not opening allowing the coolant to circulate
you can check for a cracked head/ blown head gasket with a compression test
