Along with Jonghyun's family, the remaining SHINee members will be chief mourners at his funeral. It was also announced that the four would be the pallbearers for the coffin. His wake is currently held at Seoul Asan Hospital. 

On the display board at the wake, the head mourners are listed as Lee Jinki, Kim Kibum, Choi Minho, and Lee Taemin. Key was in Europe when the news broke and is currently coming back to Korea as quickly as possible. 

Chief mourners are generally positions reserved for immediate family, specifically, brothers and sons. Fans have noted that the 4 SHINee members could have been listed as cousins but they weren't.
