Mean apparent poloidal rotations of ion-scale density fluctuations in the laboratory frame were observed with the microwave imaging reflectometer (MIR) system in KSTAR ohmic and neutral beam (NB) heated L-mode plasmas. The estimated apparent poloidal velocities are 1-2 km/s at r/a ~ 0.5 in the electron diamagnetic direction for ohmic plasmas, and 8-10 km/s at r/a ~ 0.6 and 5-6 km/s at r/a ~ 0.7 in the ion diamagnetic direction for NB heated L-mode plasmas. For NB heated L-mode plasmas, the apparent poloidal velocities often deviate from the poloidally projected toroidal velocities of carbon ions and the difference is 2-3 km/s. Possible sources of the measured difference are under investigation including difference in toroidal velocity between the carbon and main deuterium ions.
