Actress Son Tae-young took to her Instagram and shared a loved-up snap of her husband Kwon Sang-woo alongside their children looking out the window and taking in a snow-covered view of their building block.

With the kids closely positioned to Kwon and the couple’s apartment dimly lit, the snap made for a perfect Christmas postcard.
