Chinese fonts are missing in the console or when using vim to edit a file which contains Chinese text. For example:

kate chinese.txt // Works perfectly. Chinese text is properly displayed.
vim  chinese.txt // Displays "�� ��" instead of Chinese.

Solution:
In the Konsole window, select the menu:
Settings > Edit the current profile > Advanced > select 'UTF-8' as the default character encoding.
