You can write it in a number of ways, but the easiest is probably \rule{<len>}{<width>} hello where you specify <len> and <width>. Typically, <width> is 0.4pt.

enter image description here

\rule{10em}{0.4pt} hello \par
\rule{50pt}{1pt} hello

In a more general setting, see Long underscore in LaTeX.
