안녕하세요

an nyeong ha se yo

Hello or Good Morning or Good Afternoon or Good Evening or Good Day – this does it all.

I have presented the polite form of the term, and will probably stick with this speech level for all words and phrases, as it is safer to be seen as having a stick up one’s butt than be perceived as rude. For more information regarding Korean speech levels, see this Wikipedia entry.
