[pdftex] Getting error in \CJK at plane

Possibly I will not able to create a very small example to show the error. But I can explain when I get the problem. I am preparing one pdf for language Korean. There I am using pdfannot to display some text in English which contains some Unicode char as well. As pdfannot uses raw data, to display Unicode I am using hyperref package and pdfstringdef as suggested by Haiko in reply to one of my posts.
If I take Haiko given example:

\pdfstringdef\ContentsString{Phrase Code = ^^c2^^a9^^e2^^84^^a2} \pdfannot{%
  /Border[0 0 .1]%
  /C[0 0 1]%

In the problem scenario the text "Hi" is displayed properly in Korean(whatever might be the translation), but ContentsString which is supposed to display a English sentence (which contains some Unicode char) fails to do so and gives the error.
The same program works if I display everything in English.
How to restrict ContentsString to display only English ? In that case I guess CJK at plane related error will not come because CJK at plane is used to hold the current value when CJK package in used. In other words how can I disable the package for a particular time and then enable again?

I might sound very vague, but that much I can explain as of now.

The usual thing: Create a *minimal* example which exhibits your
problem and post it here.  You should REALLY try hard to make it as
small as possible.  Otherwise, people are not willing to help you
because it costs too much time to identify the problem.
