      First off i'd make sure you know what you're doing when you raise stuff like K8o into players like SB who seem loose based on their slowly disappearing stacks, they'll call with so much crap you have to be comfortable valuebetting hands like K8o or you're better off not raising them.

      On that flop i'd probably just fire two streets minimum into him when he c/c, but c/mr is another story if you don't have a read on him.

      If he's really aggro then calling will force you to call other streets in the dark with maybe the worse hand from the start and through ugly turn cards like Ad where you'll have no idea where you're at.

      If he's really passive then there is a good chance that your equity against his range already sucks right on the flop, so i'd hesitate between calling the flop and c/f the rest, or folding right there to avoid weird spots against an passive guy suddenly very interesting in betting.

      Hope it helps.
