A7ii: why is white balance different before and after shutter release?

I found the color of my framed object in the EVF/LCD is different before and after the shutter release. This is especially true under artificial lighting situation.

Tonight at a restaurant, I was taking a photo of my daughter. As I used a manual focus lens, the framing and manual focusing process gave me enough time to see what the white balance was, especially the skin color on my daughter's face. After I clicked the shutter, the re-played photo in the EVF changed its white balance, turning to a not-so-pleasing skin color. I am not sure why this is the case. I've never seemed to see anything like this for my other cameras. Any thoughts? Thanks!
