안녕/안녕하세요/안녕하십니까


Explanation:
We have three froms to say hi!
1. 안녕/annyong/ is an informal form of "hi!" to a close friend or a person at lower age ie. You are talking to kids.
2. 안녕하세요/annyonghaseyo/ is also an informal "hi!" but can be used when you talk to a person at your age or older than you or someone who is not so close as to say just "안녕".

3. 안녕하십니까/annyonhashimnigga/ is often used as "how do you do?" as well even if it is from the same verb stem as the others. This is very formal and as you can use it when you want to say "hi!" to your client or someone you need to show extreme politeness.
