Apart from the movie’s interesting plot, Quantum Physics massively caught the attention of the majority due to its similarity to Korea’s Burning Sun scandal. It was also noted that some scenes were actually shot at the Burning Sun. Speculations came out telling that it was originally portraying the Drug Scandal.
But this was firmly denied by Merry Christmas Entertainment, the film’s producer, which they have no idea about it and they were done filming the Quantum Physics at the same location, before its explosion. Thus, this gave obviously positive attention to viewers who got intrigued by the film.
The main character, Lee Chan Woo (Park Hae-Soo) knew that there is a celebrity drug scandal happening in his club. Being good in nature, he never was settled by the fact that they would continue to flourish their uncanny business.
