Even I put these two software in the recycle bin, and uninstall them on terminal, R is still there with mac ports when I enter R in the terminal. The problem exists. I don't know whether my mac ports sucks.

It isn't actually clear that this is MacPorts as in "sudo port install R" or just some port of R, which might even be the CRAN one. If it is MacPorts, then we'd probably need to know the exact variant and compiler setup -- last one I tried wouldn't even compile (because it tried to use gcc-4.8). If it is another port, we'd need to know more about the setup. A CJK-locale issue might be suspected from the Chinese characters in the poster's "From:" field.
