East Asia is similar, particularly Korea and Japan when you take into account precipitation.

Roughly Speaking:
Tianjin=NYC
Shanghai=Raleigh
Guangzhou=Jacksonville
Haikou=Miami
Tianjin is significantly colder than NYC in winter, on average.
Qingdao is more similar to NYC, with its milder summers too.

It mostly depends on what you mean when you say '4-season climate'.
From what I see, some people define it as a climate whose annual thermal amplitude is large and annual average is not very high. I don't think it's necessarily this way, and in my opinion most definitions tend to be self-centered. A place may be seasonally well defined even with a diference of only 10ºC between summer and winter.

However, if you think of regions whose climate is similar to the one of the East Coast of the USA, then I do say Japan, the Po Valley (Italy), Central Eastern Europe, far Eastern China, etc. Although much milder, climate patterns of central-eastern Argentina also work pretty much the same as in Eastern USA.

East Asia is similar to the East Coast mostly temperature-wise. The precipitation patterns are actually quite different among the two: Korea and Eastern China display a pronounced monsoonal pattern with dry winters and wet summers, while Japan, though being rainy in all seasons, is usually much wetter than the East Coast.

A 4-season climate, however, can be found in many areas of Europe too. It isn't really the same 4-season climate of the East Coast, but still a 4-season climate.

The only places I know of that match it near perfectly are Japan, the southern Caucasus and parts of Ukraine.

They have distinct seasons, but summers are far from humid:

Northern Iraq (Duhok)

Central and Southeastern Turkey (Hakkari)

From Hokkaido to Ryukyu Islands, comparable to East Coast which is Maine to Central/South Florida.
Overall Japanese climate has much smaller diurnal range.
