It is concerning though, being that this is a 2.4liter engine, it probably only takes 4.5 quarts and being halfway low on oil with no leaks at all is a major concern.
I'd recommend attempting to rotate the engine over by hand, with a socket and large bar on the crankshaft bolt. This is the way to assure its not seized up, which it may be.
I worked for Kia and these engines are semi fragile, running on two quarts of oil could have caused major damage, but I really hope it did not. The oil light did not come on before any of this happened.
