The PostScript file does not contain any fonts at all. It does request a number
of different fonts; STSong-Light, STFangsong-Light, STHeiti-Regular,
STKaiti-Regular and Times-Roman.

With the exception of Times-Roman these are not part of the standard base
fonts, nor are they part of the font set shipped with Ghostscript. Therefore
you must have added these yourself (otherwise Ghosrtscript complains that it
can't find the fonts, as mine does). 

Since the 1.3 PDF file contains CIDFonts with TrueType outlines, I assume that
you have used TrueType fonts as replacements for CIDFonts. While this does
work, it is not really 100% foolproof. What you are doing here is attempting to
use the *same* font for both horizontal and vertical writing, I'm not surprised
to find that it is not 100% reliable.

It is curious that only the punctuation is rotated but I am unable to
investigate this without being able to reproduce the problem. I can't do that
unless I know which fonts you used to replace the missing ones, so I need a
copy of your cidfmap, and probably access to the fonts you used as replacements
as well.

it would also help to have a simpler file, though I can of course reduce the
PostScript file.
