Does this apply to Kia Optimas with the same engine?

I received this in the mail about 3 weeks ago. This does nothing to address the problem that hyundai is lying about these engines. At first it was 2011 and some 2012 engines, now it's up to 2013/2014 and Kia owners are now seeing engines blow.
One of the "fixes" for the recall was to replace the dipsticks that change what "full" means, so now to show "full" you need to add like a half a quart of oil. So all this time sonata owners you have not been putting enough oil in these flawed engines.
This only extends the warranty to 120k. The "test" for the engine is a joke and there are many engines that "passed" the test that are now blowing.
