@akai-kenshi san,

IMHO, this problem's root cause is Flash Player 9/10 implementations, they hard-code a explicit fontnames. And, Flash Player 11(and later), they use fontconfig approach, it is good solver for CJK problem.
Therefor, In now, we can display CJK glyphs with the right fontconfigs.

And, in Japanese, Ubuntu 11.10(and later) have a right fontconfigs with
language-selector-common packages, you can display CJK glyphs in
Flash(include Hulu).

So, I have two questions about this issue, 
 - 1. Can you reproduce this issue?
 - 2. What version of Ubunutu/Flash packages?

Title:
  Adobe Flash Player 9 and 10 displays CJK text incorrectly

Status in Ubuntu Translations:
  Fix Released
Status in “flashplugin-nonfree” package in Ubuntu:
  Incomplete
Status in “fontconfig” package in Ubuntu:
  Incomplete
Status in “language-selector” package in Ubuntu:
  Incomplete

Bug description:
  On Ubuntu 7.10, Adobe Flash player 9 can display Chinese or Japanese
  (and likely Korean) glyphs, but on Ubuntu 8.04 it doesn't work,
  displaying "squares" for non-Latin glyphs instead.  It seems that
  "Bitstream Vera Sans" (with no font substitution) is used rather than
  "WenQuanYi Zen Hei" or other appropriate CJK fonts.  A screenshot is
  attached.

  Steps to reproduce:

   1. System -> Properties -> Language Support (from language-selector),
  and select one of the CJK locales as the default.

   2. Re-login as needed.

   3. Start Firefox and open e.g. http://www.tudou.com/ .

  The same problem still plagues Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (lucid) beta 1 with
  Adobe Flash Player: flashplugin-installer 10.0.45.2ubuntu1.
