When you're importing it's probably showing the embedded jpg from the raw, and once it's done importing it looks at the raw data and applies a default profile. What you're describing sounds exactly like the highlight correction effect, so you might want to double check that it's still turned off.

It could also be that your default profile in Lightroom changed. Try adjusting a picture to a standard profile or no correction to see if that's the case. (Not sure the exact buttons on Lightroom but in DXO you right click the image and select "no corrections" it will show the raw image as shot with only your in camera settings applied.)

If you can't figure it out try shooting in raw+jpeg. If the jpg is underexposed too then it's either a camera setting or camera error and you can try doing a factory reset.

Check if you have highlight correction enabled. On mh K-3 it causes a similar effect where the jpg looks fine but the raw data is underexposed when loaded in DXO.

Highlight correction underexposes about a stop to keep from blowing highlights and corrects it in camera when making the jpg. The jpg thumbnail included in the raw file is also corrected but opening it in a raw editor shows the underexposed raw data. Boosting by 1 to 1.5 stops should fix it, or turn off highlight correction on your camera. (If the K-50 doesn't have highlight correction you can just ignore what I've said.)

I'm a fan of the natural setting too. It looks the closest to what I see and remember in my mind. Bright seems to overemphasize reds and oranges in skin and wood tones.
