No. You absolutely MUST rrpf. You're HU Blind v. Blind. Even if he's a tight player he can/should do this with any Ace, King, Broadway, SC, or Pair. Many players will raise HU with any 2 cards. If you know he's a player who will always fire a CB you might flat PF with the intention of picking off a c-bet but that's not what you did. You flatted a 10 bb raise PF and folded to a scary overcard which will fall about 60% of the time.
Let's just deal with the flop for a second. If you're really worried about the K (and you shouldn't be) an alternative line might be to float him, meaning call the bet and see if he has the balls to barrel you on the Turn. But to be honest, I would call even if he does. The only Turn cards I might fold to is are Ace and possibly a Queen.
Strange as it may seem, with the King on the flop you're best line might be to flat him on the Flop Turn and River as raising will most likely fold out all the hands you beat leaving only the hands that beat you to call. You do run the risk of letting a weaker hand catch up, 78 for example, but in the long run I think it's the best line.
And oh yeah, if he shows down a King, sorry but that's poker.
