Question about 1997 Kia Sportage
I worked on a 2000 Sephia which had a similar problem. Not sure if the engine is the same, but I recall the distributorless ignition system used an unusual set-up. It used two coil packs, sitting on alternating cylinders. When one goes out, it will kill two alternating cylinders, just as you are describing. If I recall correctly, the part is around $100 from a dealership, but if you're feeling lucky, you can check a junkyard.
Here are some quick and dirty instruction on how to replace the part http://www.ehow.com/how_4520517_replace-ignition-coil-kia-spectra.html
