This problem has bugged me for long and I couldn't put up with it anymore. I have two lines and I want to fillet them. But the results are as followed. One of the line somehow flipped.
What could I have done to solve it?

What is your fillet radius?
Is one of those lines a very short line?
If you find one of those lines is a short line, make it longer, and your problem should go away.
If it doesn't post the drawing here so we can have a look at it and try to fix the problem
Try selecting well back from the intersection.
Circle TTR and Trim.
Mind if I ask the principle or logic behind the command fillet?
I found out that sometimes I couldn't fillet between an arc/line and a polyline. I have to explode the polyline to separate arc/lines so as to fillet between them.

upload the drawing (at least that entities) that can't be filleted and mark the position + communicate the radius you tried.
There may be a lot of reasons like differnt Z, different coordinate systems, elements in blocks, ...

A dxf file has been attached.
I initially could not fillet the polyline to the arc, but after exploding I could.
Yet, I doubt that exploding a polyline is the best way to do that as sometimes my polyline can be really long with lots of knots. It would be a pain in the **** to rejoin them back after exploding.
Why is it happening?

That's correct you cannot fillet an arc to a polyline. However you can make all your arcs in your drawing into polylines very quickly using PEDIT.
1. Right click and choose QUICK SELECT. A dialog box will pop up
2. There is a section which says OBJECT TYPE. Change the word MULTIPLE to ARC.
3. There is a section which says OPERATOR. Change =EQUALS to ALL. All your arcs are now selected.
4. Move them a fixed distance away from your main drawing. Say 1000 up (as long as they are OUTSIDE the main drawing).
5. Type in PEDIT at the command line.
6. Press M for MULTIPLE.
7. Select all your arcs.
8.It will ask "Convert Lines, Arcs and Splines to Polylines?" Hit Y for YES.
9 Move your newly created polylines back to where they originally were.
