Record splitting with AWK

Hi all !

I need your help as quick as possible.

My input file like this:

bạc těnh ( 薄情) 1 . 薄情な.2. 夫婦或いは男女の不貞を指す。
bách (百,迫)1.100ドソ. tr a m b a c ともいう. 2.柏(カヽしわ)・ 3.圧迫する.4.差し迫った,

My propose is take the value in the firt bracket. I used the command like :
...if (index( $3,"(")==1)$3=substr($3,2,index($3,")")-1);
else if (index( $3,"(")==1)$3=substr($3,2,index($3,")1."-3);
and my result with the fist line, i take the value 薄情.
but the second line, the value is wrong. Because it took 百,迫)1.100ドソ. tr a m b a c ともいう. 2.柏(カヽしわ.
but I want to take the 百,迫.

So what can I do?

Thanks!

Before, I do like this:
BEGIN {
FS="\t";RS="\n";
}
Because now I want to take the words during ( ), and $3 it means the value I will take.
I write like this
if (index( $3,"(")==0 && index($3,"・・)==0)$3="";
else if (index( $3,"(")==1)$3=substr($3,2,index($3,"・・)-2);

My result will have 2 column, 1 is
bách
and the second column is 百,迫
but now I have problem when the lines have 2 ( ) like this
bách (百,迫)1.100ドソ. tr a m b a c ともいう. 2.柏(カヽしわ)

After the bách I use tab code(button) and before the bách I also using the tab code.

And my result is
bách 百,迫)1.100ドソ. tr a m b a c ともいう. 2.柏(カヽしわ

Then could you help me to fix my mistake?

The problem is that the file is not well structured, you can try:

Code:
awk -F'[)(]' '{print $1, $2}' infile

OK,
could you please post the output of the command below and explain what's wrong with it?
Just run it in your terminal:

Code:
awk -F'[)(]' '{print $1, $2}' name_of_your_input_file
