Technically both are not ramen. They're both just instant noodles, and what Americans call "ramen" is very strange to me sometimes. This is an example of ramen:
And there are many variations and all sorts of possible toppings but the common denominator is a Chinese wheat noodle and a broth (which is usually a very secret recipe and what chefs spend a lot of time creating).
Sometimes those selling instant/cup noodles will put "ramen" on the label to suggest that it tastes or looks like ramen, though technically it is not.
