It’s bye in a polite tone when you are the one who is leaving. 안녕히 is an adverb form of 안녕하다 which means ‘well’ or ‘peacefully. 계세요 is an honorific verb that means ‘stay’ or ‘be in some place’. So 안녕히 계세요 literally means ‘stay well’. Wait, then what can you say when you are the one who stays?

 

Native Koreans often don’t pronounce h sound in 히 and y sound in 계. So, it sounds like ‘안녕이 계세요 [annyung-i geseyo]’.
