Is the oil used for the 2021 K5 EX, and I would think all of the other models (Lx, LXS, GT-LINE and the GT),
a SEMI - SYNTHETIC OIL and NOT full synthetic (like MOBIL 1)?

Why not just call the DEALER and see what they use in your model?
That is the first thing that I did. Matter of fact, I called them twice, the first time I was told SEMI - synthetic and the second time I was told FULL synthetic! Turns out after talking to a Kia rep. Semi was used in my K5. Finally, after 2 calls to the dealer, asking here on the K5 forum and talking to a Kia rep, I finally get a answer from someone that knows. It's SEMI - SYNTHETIC!! YEA!

Not sure why your excited they used semi, according to the manual it recommends FULL synthetic...
