I'm not quite sure if this is what you are looking for but maybe you find it useful. it is a board game with lots of trivia like questions about different topics. You can use the board game or adapt the questions to your necessities. I have already used it and children and adults loved it. I have taken it from www.eslcity.com. Tell us your experience if you happen to use it.

While I do not know the goals or needs of Korean middle school students, I loved sports, movie, and history trivia when I was 12. Have you tried soliciting 10 questions and answers from each student? You could also require that they list their original source so they begin to develop an appreciation for research methods.

Have you checked out the Jeopardy website yet? They might have some valuable material for your students. Plus the Trivia Pursuit empire.

Finally, quotations often provide a valuable bridge between trivia and context so I would throw in a section on solid quotations for sports, movies, or whatever field you choose. Clever words often illuminate isolated numbers and make material more meaningful and memorable. Just a thought.
