Default Playing too passive?

Pick this hand apart. What should I have done? Why?

PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t20 (9 handed) converter
$10+1

SB (t1660)
BB (t1490)
Hero (t1470)
UTG+1 (t1680)
MP1 (t1670)
MP2 (t1220)
MP3 (t1450)
CO (t1430)
Button (t1430)

Preflop: Hero is UTG with K[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], J[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img].
Hero calls t20, UTG+1 calls t20, <font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, MP2 calls t20, <font color="#666666">2 folds</font>, Button calls t20, SB completes, BB checks.

Flop: (t120) T[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], 4[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], K[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(6 players)</font>
<font color="#CC3333">SB bets t60</font>, BB folds, Hero calls t60, UTG+1 folds, MP2 folds, Button folds.

Turn: (t240) 9[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
<font color="#CC3333">SB bets t90</font>, Hero calls t90.

River: (t420) 3[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
<font color="#CC3333">SB bets t120</font>, Hero?

Fold preflop. If you are going to call I would probably raise the flop.

Yeah I agree with everyone here saying fold preflop. As far as the rest I really don't know...I hate decisions.

I agree folding preflop was probably best. But now I am in the hand what do you do post flop?

Since you're in, I think you need to raise the flop. You've top pair, good kicker, you need to find out if your kicker is beat, or if maybe he hit two pair. Just calling the bet on the flop tells you nothing about his hand, or if you've got him beat or not.
