Regarding the problem, refilling transmission fluid is only forst step in troubleshooting.
The problem is often either the shifter console, the transmission control unit (TCU computer module), or a faulty transmission box itself.
Next step in troubleshooting is doing a code scanning. An OBD II code scanning can be done at home or at any garage, but to do a complete code scanning that includes scanning of transmission control module you need a Vag Com tool. This is expensive and it is available only at the dealer place or at a VW/Kia authorized garage. Scanning is usually billed half hour labour, and it is not expensive.
I wrote an article on same problem here. Disregard the part on "stuck in park". Article was originally written for Mercedes. Things are not too different with the Kia carens tranny.
