Is there a word for adults? (How do we respect adults?)

Hello!!! I'm a Korean and the reason why I want to know this is because in Korea we have different words to respect adults. ex: 안녕->안녕하세요.

You mean greeting people that are older than you? Not really, but you can use 您好 (Nín hǎo) instead of 你好 (Nǐ hǎo) to show more respect, although 你好 is just as fine.
