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.
