Welcome to the KIA forums. Take off the battery terminals and give them a good clean also check connections at starter and chassis earth. I think your battery is probably not recharging as it should, possibly due to bad connection at the terminals. Fully charged a good battery will usually have around 12.5 -12.6 volts with no load. After starting the car and only a short drive your battery has not recharged enough to restart the engine. Might be also an idea to get your battery tested under load to check it's condition. I see you are from a cold area so that definitely doesn't help if the battery is getting a bit weak.
