Final Cut add colors to the clips itself?

Hello everyone,
Thanks for taking time to read my post.
I edited a movie on Final Cut Pro X, the real colors are quite flat, they shot it that way so we could easily add colors afterwards, although when I import them to Final Cut Pro they change color, it's like it adds colors to the clips itself. I checked the color options and it says it does not have any effects on clips.
I also exported the film just to see if it's still like that, and yes it lost that flat color. How do I fix this?
I attached some images for you to see the difference.
Thanks in advance!!

On the import screen you probably have the box checked that optimizes color balance on import.
