Book names and index of contents shows tofu when viewing Chinese ebooks

I installed Kobo desktop reader on my Ubuntu 18.04 with Wine, inside the app, there is a preference can pick fonts, when the right fonts be picked, the content of book show correctly, but the book names and the index cannot be configured, so they show "tofu".

When I use Kobo for Mac, no such problem.

Quick test

With Wine 2.2 the application locks up while previewing a book. This does not occur with Wine Staging 2.2.

I'll submit a full test result later.
