ㄱ as a final consonant is not always pronounced as [k].

When a syllable which has ㄱ as a final consonant is followed by another syllable, for example 역사 (history), the ㄱ is pronounced as [k].

However in single syllable words like 약 (medicine) or 옥 (jade) the sound [k] will not be pronounced, and it will seem as if the speaker has stopped just before pronouncing it.

Other k-consonants ㅋ ㄲ, when in the final position, will be pronounced as ㄱ, for example 부엌, 밖, 깎다.
