I have some news to update, the problem to cause the ugly font is mainly because I don't have ttf-wqy-zenhei installed and fontconfig-config's 65-nonlatin.conf still has Zen Hei only.

....
   <family>WenQuanYi Zen Hei</family> <!-- han (zh-cn,zh-tw) -->
   <family>WenQuanYi Bitmap Song</family> <!-- han (zh-cn,zh-tw) -->

As WQY Micro Hei is the default installed font now, we should update fontconfig-config, add one line to 65-nonlatin.conf like this:

...
   <family>WenQuanYi Micro Hei</family> <!-- han (zh-cn,zh-tw) -->
   <family>WenQuanYi Zen Hei</family> <!-- han (zh-cn,zh-tw) -->
   <family>WenQuanYi Bitmap Song</family> <!-- han (zh-cn,zh-tw) -->
...

Then it will be fixed without touch any other files, fontconfig-voodoo is not needed too.
