    I try to correct the right one using Photoshop, can achieve similar to the left one. This is the result:

    Similar, but like YS said, it's now a little too warm. But hey, you had a reference. When you get the RIGHT pic without a reference, it's going to be very hard to get the colours back to what it was supposed to be.

    In photo labs, you do get what you pay for.

    you're right; without a reference, it will be difficult to do color correction.
    My point is: color correction is possible at post-processing stage.
    The picture on the left, may or may not be correct too. It is just because it looks better, then we assume that it was correct.

    If you want to get a correct color balance, then shoot a color target (preferably Kodak Q.60) on the first frame of the film. Later this frame will act as reference when correcting colors.
    This way, you can correct color cast rendered by the photo-lab's processing. (this method is not intended to correct color cast caused by the lighting)

    IMO, I prefer the right picture of the first images.

    Maybe because the black of the right picture is blacker.

    Anyone thinks likewise?

    I don't use flash, my film SLR battery can last for 2 years, but my camcorder cannot even last 3 days without recharge. Now, which is more convenient?
