How many miles on the car? Is it low on oil? If it's excess wear, you probably have excess clearance on the solid valve lifters? They're not like hydraulic lifters which adjust automatically, somewhat to take up some slack in your valvetrain. From what I read their are slightly longer replacement solid valve lifters to take up the slack, supposedly available from the Kia parts Dept. in different lengths depending on what you need? But, it is a lot of work to change them. A slightly heavier weight oil, would quiet it down some.

Some previous Hyundai/Kia vehicles: 2002 Santa Fe LX V6 AWD, 2005 Tucson LX V6 AWD, 2010 Tucson GLS 2.4L AWD, 2011 Sportage EX 2.4L AWD, 2015 Sorento Ex V6 AWD

Valve clatter or GDI noise? These engines can have a little clicking noise due to direct injection. I certainly can notice it idling in the driveway with the hood open. As mentioned, a heavier weight oil is worth trying, especially down south.
