The king on the river gave your opponent two pair, kings and nines. It also changed your best hand, giving you two pair, kings and nines. Your opponent had a queen kicker, which plays on this board and is the sole difference between your hand and your opponent's. In hold-em, the best hand is determined by the best 5-card combination of cards for each player ...

The responsibility to show first lies on the person who put in the last bet or raise on the last betting round. In your example, this will be the person who shoved all-in.
