k-3 pink skin tones in low light

I've noticed that my k-3 gives skin tones a distinctively pink coloration, regardless of what color setting I've tried, regardless of what lens I use (in the same living room I used to use my k-5 in, without issue). Has anyone else encountered this?

Perhaps the white balance need to be adjusted for the lighting in the room.
White balance is changed from the K-5 and in my opinion generally the K-3 does a better job.

ok. I've used the auto WB on the k-3. And I think the issue is when it switches to the Tungsten setting. Is this a logical thought? Is there a way to address only the tungsten WB setting?

Looks like you are shooting JPGs, if this is so just adjust the colour setting to your liking.

You can create 3 custom white balances for your use.
If shooting raw you can always fix it in post, and jpg allows some latitude as well.
