The copenhagen interpretation is just one of several ways of thinking about QM,
though. Other interpretations, like the many-worlds interpretation or the Bohm
interpretation, do try to come up with a model of an underlying reality that
gives rise to the events we observe empirically. Of course, as long as these
different models of different underlying realities don't lead to any new
predictions they can't be considered scientific theories, but physicists often
discuss them nevertheless.
