Because it's a mirrorless camera : MIRRORLESS. There's no mirror, so technically you can't get an OVF since there's no mirror that will reflect what the lens see

Then how does the MIRRORLESS Fuji Xpro1 (with hybrid EVF/OVF) work?

I saw picture of MIRRORLESS Fuji Xpro1. the VF is all the way at the Top left side, not behind the lens, as in most of DSLRs, so it says Hybrid, it cant be Optical VF

It's Hybrid because you can switch it from OVF to EVF. But, it does have a very real OVF. Just doesn't work like a DSLR, with mirror and all. More like rangefinders in that sense, which don't have mirrors either.
