Hi. So it doesn't matter when I worked on RGB or CMYK mode,
the color (and also the code of course) gradually change by itself.
The color keeps changing if I re-open the file even the color mode or settings remain the same.
As you can see, the colors on the top is my original color but it turns faded/darker at the bottom.
Thank you 🙂
It is important to say, though, that if you use a Pantone spot colour in your design, then the CMYK and RGB values can and must change if you change your colour profile. That's the rules...
Hey.. All you need to do is to change your color mode from CMYK to RGB. Go to File > Document Color Mode > RGB. And RELINK your Image or pdf. If you don't relink your file you will NOT see any changes, So you MUST relink your file.

Generally this is not a good advice. You don't just change the document color mode without considering how the artwork will be used.
I'm having the same issue and apparently, cms is auto converting the values to preserver appearance. Which causes the colors to shift. I've posted my work around in the above link. Please check it out. Only happens when images are involved.
What you are describing is not a workaround and the solution has already been posted in this thread.
I had the same problem when I switched to Illustrator 26.0.2. I am working in RGB, and import my brand color swatches each time. Illustrator wants to switch to CMYK every time I open the file. I fixed this with this trick. Everytime I open my illustrator files I just go to File > Document Color Mode > change from CMYK to RBG, then resave the file. When you create a new Illustrator file make sure to select Color Mode > RGB.
When you create a new Illustrator file make sure to select Color Mode > RGB.
That is a recipe for disaster.
When creating a new file, make sure you select document type of Screen, Mobile or film that already is in RGB. You don't want to convert a CMYK file to RGB, because that will mess up your swatches.
I had this issue aswell, I couldn't get around it in AI but when if you switch to photoshop you can fill in your AI document with the correct colors that way
